This is a special, one-time buy of the Vostok Ship's clocks built by the Vostok Watch and Clock company of Chistopol, Russia. We don't know when we will be getting these again.
Orders MUST be placed by January 31, 2017. Delivery will be sometime in mid February.
These are the real thing! Heavy duty (they weigh 6 pounds!) manual key-wound clocks with and 8 day power reserve. Vostok has been building these clocks for naval vessels for decades. These are NOT used or refurbished. These are brand new clocks made to sea going specifications. Don't miss this opportunity to own a piece of history!
This particular model is the Radio Room clock with the radio silence periods. This grew out of the Titantic disaster due to the radio room operators not being able to get their mayday out over the chatter on the radio. The Radio Room Act of 1912 created these 3 minute radio silence periods where the only transmission allowed were emergency flash traffic. Those silence periods are indicated by the wedges or pie pieces on the dial. This at greatly reduced the loss of life in future naval disasters.
12 jewels is equipped with an anchor escapement.
Splash-proof aluminum case with anti-corrosion coating.
