Original Soviet Ship’s Silent Hours Clock
Russian radio room clock with a brass band around the face and the silent hours flashes
The sinking of the Titanic resulted in the Radio Act of 1912 that required 24-hour radio watches. The disaster also led to clocks in the newer radio rooms featuring three-minute periods marked in red. That three minutes provided a silent period when only emergency radio messages could be transmitted
Originally painted in greys and beiges but its too tempting to professionally polish them when they end up looking this cool
Don’t be afraid of a wind-up, these have a great movement and a better reputation for time keeping than earlier British ships clocks
An 8 day movement that you’ll need to wind on Sunday mornings
The clock comes with its own key for unlocking the case and winding the movement
