1085 Seth Thomas SoldSeth Thomas "Convoy" Clock - sometimes called a "Zig Zag" clock - this rare example dates from the early 20th century. Originally the electrical connector on the hand (now absent) completed a circuit which sounded a bell. Every time the bell rang the helmsman would change course (therefore "Zig Zag") to reduce the risk of U-Boat attack. The clock was designed without a bezel or glass - a replacement dial has now been fitted and the 30 hour movement serviced. A real collector’s clock!

This is the most complete example of a "Zig Zag" clock that we have had – many ended their days at the bottom of the North Atlantic! The movement has been cleaned and is in good running order.
