Here is a great English ship clock by Sestrel for your buying consideration. Would make a great gift or keep for yourself.
An online buyer recently selected this item, but then never paid and did not respond to emails. So, this Clock is being made available again for your buying advantage!
The clock was made for R F Bovey, a maritime supplier in Vancouver British Columbia by Sestrel Clock Company of England.
Just a beautiful brass case on this clock. Same for the glass on the bezel. Very thick glass. Just some minor surface scratching, no cracks or blistering. The bezel is securely attached to the case.
The escapement and movement look good. The movement was gummed up from years of not being used. The movement was just serviced by Clock Doc and the clock is now running well again. This is a time only clock. The spring feels sound on the movement when keyed. So, selling the clock in running condition. The clock will come with a wind key.
The face shows some discoloration from age and is intact. The clock has both its' minute and hour hands as well as the seconds hand. The clock with the wood plaque stands 11" across, by 4-7/8" wide. The brass case is 10" across. Let us know if you have any questions or need additional pictures.
As can be expected when dealing with an antique clock, some adjustments may be needed after shipping to get the clock re-running correctly again as they can be very delicate. If you have not had experience with old mechanical clocks before, I would suggest you steer clear. One really needs to have the patience, and skill to work with these great works of art. They are not our modern plug in and go, or change the battery clocks. Please ask any questions relating to this matter, before you decide to purchase it.
Make sure that this clock meets your needs and requirements before deciding to acquire it. The item can be returned, there is a 10% restocking fee to do so. So, please carefully review all the attached pictures, ask all the questions you have, come see in person or send a friend to see the item on your behalf, prior to deciding to acquire it. Don't be shy to make an offer, we are always open to reasonable suggestions!
