USN Clock WWII 6"

I've had this old M. LOW 8 day clock since 1977 and I think it's time to sell it with all the other stuff. It's too big for my chart table so it's got to go. It's only been wound up three times that I can remember since 1977. Once just last week and it still runs good. Comes with the key.

I'd like to get US$150 and I'll ship it for free anywhere in the USA. Post here or PM me.

Wow! That's nice. Looks like the ones I used to have to wind on my first destroyer.
kind regards,

It came off of the USS Tutuila RG-4, decommissioned/sold to Taiwan 1977.

Re: USN clock WWII 6"

That's very pretty! It looks quite like the WWII US Navy clock which is the ship's clock on my boat. Mine is a Chelsea, however, and was quite a bit more expensive than yours. Yours looks very nice, and a huge bargain! I'm sure it won't last long.

Thanks guys! It's sold now. The early bird catches the worm, so to speak.
