My New Ship's Clock

My New Ship's Clock

New postby Irwin » Sat May 27, 2017 4:09 pm

Today I found this German ship's clock at a house sale, not working. The lady of the house was selling up and the clock had been hanging on the wall for years.
It's actually quite modern but has a quality build.
I opened it up and all that was wrong with it was seizure. A couple of drops of oil, a little encouragement and off she went.
It's going up on the wall.

There wasn't a maker's name anywhere. Just, Made in Germany on the dial.
I suspect it might be Hermle.

That was my thought, probably from 60's or 70's...
