British Navy 0552 Elliott Deck Clock incoming

Post by River Rat » Thu Nov 19, 2020 12:43 pm

Just bought this off the MWR PX you know how I got a soft spot for nautical clocks off ships mainly Military Naval clocks from any Navy. British Navy has been hard to find well one popped up for sell at the MWR PX must of been the first to contact the seller it's mine now. This is a gorgeous clock almost mint. It's a British 0552 Elliott Deck Clock maybe issued June 1971 from the issue marks on case back. Funny this clock could of been on active duty when I was scary means I am old. The Elliott clock company been making clocks for the British Military since before WW2 got a RAF Elliott RAF Mess clock made in 1938. A few photo's running out of wall space in the house.

Has Eight day movement and being freshly serviced should have no worries after I receive it. One thing when you got the military timepiece collection habit these are a better deal than vintage issued wristwatches that has got so over priced I am lucky to find a deal once in a while like that Czech issued Eterna I was lucky to find last month for a great price. I bet it was on the bridge or the wardroom what we call officers country on ship.

Now you need to take-up wood working and build a nice Teak box for your clocks.
