Styled like a ship's chronometer, the Captain's Desk or Table Clock makes an outstanding gift for anyone who appreciates quality workmanship and the flavor of the by-gone era of the great sailing vessels. You would be proud to give or receive this fine timepiece for a special occasion, retirement gift or incentive award. The octagonal polished mahogany box with brass-hinged top is 5" in diameter and is 3¼" high with top closed. The brass clock, with battery operated German quartz movement, is 3½" in diameter. It has a compass rose design on the face, arabic numbers, an alarm and tilts forward for easy reading while seated. Accented in brass, complete with an engravable octagonal brass plate in the top. Preston's would be glad to do the engraving on a custom sized plate for you (up to 16 characters). We add $25.00 for personalization.
