British Military (MOD) Clock

This is a large and heavy timepiece that was designed for the purpose of being a Signal Centre Clock. It is key wound, the movement being a Smiths “Astral”. The case is designed not only to protect the clock against severe knocks, but is also fully waterproof as it has 4 large screws on the front for this purpose.

The key is retained in a dedicated holder, and the dial adorned with the standard British Military broadarrow shows 12hr as well as 24hr markings; while a removable dial ring can be used to show Greenwich meantime.

The use of the clock along with instructions on how to wind and make the mechanism waterproof are included on the rear of the removable metal front panel.
