These mirror finished, American made ship’s bell clocks are among the finest made—anywhere in the world. This model called the “Pilot”, has a 6 inch dial of heavy brass, silver-plated and lacquered. The statuary bronze plated ring surrounding the clock is of a solid square of brass,not a right angle piece or hollowed out in back. It is drilled for the ship’s wheel handles to pass through.The handle ends are threaded so they then screw into the brass case, securing the handles and ring together.The bezel (door) hinges open for weekly winding of this precision movement.
