This beautiful Stanley London® Boxed Quartz Clock is a modern reproduction of an antique nautical clock. The clock features a highly accurate quartz movement and is housed in a handsome satin finish mahogany wood case. An accurate timepiece is required for determination of the ship's location at sea using celestial navigation. Before the development of extremely accurate chronometers, only the latitude could be calculated. With precise clocks, the ship's longitude could also be determined, however an error of only one second of time is equal to a 1/4 nautical mile error at the equator. When opened, the clock platform hinges up toward the viewer for quick and convenient reading. The hand crafted box has elegant brass hinges and fittings, and sits on four felt-covered brass feet so as not to damage your furniture.
The Boxed Quartz Clock is perfect for the dresser or adorning your office. A custom engraved brass plaque can be mounted on the front of the hardwood case. Please note that it is not possible to mount a plaque on the inside lid because of the exposed clock movement. The face of the clock is protected with glass, and the quartz clock is powered by a single standard pen-light AA battery. The boxed clock measures 6 inches (15.2 cm) square, and 3 5/8 inches (9.2 cm) tall, and weighs 2 pounds 6 ounces (1 kilogram). The brass clock bezel measures 3 1/2 inches (9 cm) in diameter and the clock face measures 2 5/8 inches (6.7 cm) in diameter.
