Ahoy there Father Time

VETERA NOVIS
A lovely condition, mid century ships clock, sold by William Bates of Chatham.
Circa 1950
Brass case with painted dial. There is some chipping to the inside of the glass but this does not deter from the beautiful look of the clock.
The original movement was beyond economic repair, therefore has been replaced with a radio controlled quartz movement. The movement picks up a signal from Germany so that the clock always shows the right time and will automatically self adjust for daylight saving. The movement takes a standard AA battery, which will last at least a year, and can be replaced by unscrewing the dial to get to the movement behind.
A beautifully well built clock with low maintenance (no winding up every week), which will look lovely on any wall.

Dimensions: 

  • H: 23cm (9.06in)
  • D: 9cm (3.54in)

Period: 

1940s

Tony and Lynne have been dealing in Antiques and upcycling home decor items since 2017.  Tony runs the repair shop, ensuring all items are ready for a new forever home, he can put his hand to all types of skills from French polishing to leaded lights; whilst Lynne is the design expert and seamstress, making soft furnishings and clothing.

They make a great team as Tony is colour blind where Lynne isn’t!  The shop gets its name from the Latin Vetera (old) and Novis (new), meaning we create new life from old things.
