1930s Australian Penny back design hand crafted engraved table clock with bevelled front glass (magnifying), roman numeral dial, hour, minute and second details is a classic you need to add to your collection!
Even the old ship captains of the classic pirate days had to stick to deadlines. While the stars and moon might have provided directions, accurately keeping time took another classic tool entirely, one still in use today: the humble table clock. Vintage World has a collection of maritime themed timepieces that would not look out of place on the desk or mantle of the Captain of the House or anyone with an interest in nautical life and marine memorabilia.
A Vintage World table clock offers an enticing hint of a life spent sailing the seven seas and makes a beautiful addition to anyone’s carefully curated range of collectibles and antiques. Each is built with a solid copper, brass or steel alloy body, with a stunning antique or reflective chrome finish. The time is read from a traditional ‘Roman numeral’ face (some with magnifying glass crystal) which displays hands (hours, minutes & seconds) connected to a battery powered, quartz time mechanism. And whether you favour the style of the nautical anchor & ship wheel and classic divers helmet mantle clocks or go for the simpler, more traditional style desk clock (heavy enough to double as a paperweight), they each make for a popular corporate or personal gift idea. Especially for that special person in your life: You!
