Our Nauticalia Saloon Porthole Range of clocks, barometers and tide clocks have hefty solid cast brass casings, scuttle clamps, bevelled glass fronts and brass hands with black subsidiary indicators on light cream faces.
The movements are good quality - battery-operated quartz for the clocks and silvered aneroid for the barometers.
Clocks have bold Roman numerals and use one AA battery (option to purchase batteries will appear in your shopping basket).
Barometers have stainless steel aneroid movements showing millibars and inches of mercury.
Tide Clocks are influenced by the orbit of the moon around the Earth. To show this, our tide clock has an extra hand, which makes a complete sweep at the lunar rate of approximately 12½ hours instead of the normal 12. (Please note: because the lunar cycle varies with the Earth's, there are times in a month when actual tides are a few minutes ahead or behind the clock).

Nauticalia began in 1974, as a floating marine antiques shop in a converted rubbish barge on the River Thames at Shepperton. Lynn Lewis, an ex-BBC television reporter, and his wife Val, also a journalist, were the founders. As stocks of nautical antiques rapidly diminished, Lynn commissioned a batch of ten detailed replicas from a specialist metal works, and thus began Nauticalia's famous range of reproduction boating and shipping memorabilia.
