Navy Aluminum Master Wall Clock

The master clock on a large vessel is the precision clock that controls all others on that craft. This solid cast wall clock is an exact scale replica of a master clock from a 1939 United States Navy ship. The heavy aluminum allowed the clock to withstand punishing conditions at sea. With authentic details, this clock includes an operating sub-dial with a second hand. A statement piece, this impressive clock needs a stately wall to preside over.
The original Continental Navy was established on October 13, 1775. By the end of the Revolutionary War, the Naval fleet had grown to over 50 ships and had established itself as an integral part of American defense. Several naval emblems represented this nautical branch of service until Executive Order 10736 was signed by President Dwight D. Eisenhower on October 23, 1957, designating the single Navy emblem.
