These vintage Kappa Ships Clocks were previously used aboard ocean-going vessels that have since been decommissioned.
Originally operated using a 'slave' and 'master' system, these clocks were hardwired into the ship and controlled by a central 'master' clock to ensure every clock aboard the ship tells the same time as the ship entered different timezones.
Refitted with a battery operated Quartz movement, AA battery included.
Original blue-green paint.
Made in Korea
Approximate measurements: Face diameter 16cm, frame diameter 21cm, 9cm deep
Each clock is tested before dispatch. To access the Quartz movement fully remove the screw on the left side of the face.
