Nautical clocks, tide clocks and barometer sets

Brass Instrument and Nautical Clock Information

We source all our brass instruments and nautical clocks from the most reputable suppliers and all porthole instruments have hefty solid cast brass casings, hinged scuttle clamps, bevelled glass fronts and our trademark brass hands and black subsidiary indicators on light cream faces. The movements are all good quality - battery operated quartz for the clocks and silver aneroid for the barometers. We believe the quality to be excellent and the prices favourable. It is our policy to always match a price for a similar product of equal quality found for sale online in the UK. These items are not lacquered and require occasional polishing to maintain their shine or you can of course, in line with all things nautical, allow to age gracefully. All our nautical wall clocks with the exception of the tide clocks have bold Roman numerals and the barometers show millibars and inches of mercury. Clocks all use on AA battery - not provided. Please email or phone 01202 285163 regarding any further questions.

Fruits of the Sea Clock in Metal - DGL9035

We like this one, it's run and run in the shop – the background is essentially “fruits of the sea” and the rubbed down metal frame gives it a sea weathered look. Measures 30 cms in diameter and takes an AA battery we are not alowed to send through the post. Hook on the back and protrudes 7 cms out from base to front – great item and more rewarding to look at than your iPhone when seeking the time.

£14.95 each

Ships Wheel Clock in Brass- DG6763N

24 cms diameter from spoke to spoke and apologies for having to go a little over £100 but still feel very good value for a machined brass clock set within the hub of a wooden brass ship's wheel. If you've nearly finished the nautical room then this nautical clock will make the feature and we think that the recipient of this as a gift would be more than pleased!

£119 each


Ships Time Clock- DG7115N

Ships Time Clock within a hard wood Ship's wheel and excellent interior nautical décor for those with a sea theme in mind.  External diameter is 63 cms tip to tip.  Porthole diameter is 19 cms.

£195 each


Helmsman Rotating Ships Wheel Clock- DG6765N

The Helmsman's Clock - every serious sea dog of the seven seas should have one! Appropriately monuted on a pedestal so the wheel can rotate  while keeping the clock in a fixed position!

£129 each


Lifering Clock in Wood - DGL8826

It’s 21 cms and not 41 cms. This does mean that it is smaller than the majority of our clocks and if you are looking for a larger clock please look at some of our others on this site. Clocks do occasionally find their way back to us in good time because they are indeed smaller than expected so this simple description should make you, the buyer, aware that it is 21 cms and not 41 cms. This is also not inches and is centimetres so this might be worth considering before adding this item to the shopping cart. The rope at the top is on this occasion not part of the diameter of the clock but for hanging to the nail or tack that you will have to whack in to the wall to create a sturdy lifetime fixing. We do love these 21 cms in diameter clocks. And once again, a wooden Welcome Aboard Clock measuring 21 cms in diameter and 4 cms in depth. Takes an AA battery to further improve your enjoyment of this 21 cms diameter clock (in a lifering). The lifering is not suitable for lifesaving occurences.

£17.95 each
