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!
Smiths 8 Day SoldSmiths 8 Day "Convoy" Clock - by Kelvin Hughes of WWII vintage. While the original wiring is incomplete, the electrical contact ring is in place. The clock is mounted on a crude, yet correct, wooden box which is complete with the buzzer. The metal case is finished in battleship grey with the code SL.68 written on the reverse. 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.
