This is a Copper And Brass Mark V Morse US Navy Diving Helmet Clock. This Brass and copper helmet features a 2.5-inch quartz clock in the center. It is operated by one AA Battery. The Helmet is mounted on a hardwood lacquered base.
This helmet represents one of the most iconic diving helmets that has ever been mass manufactured. The Mark V has been in production since 1916 when the US Navy decided to standardize its equipment. There were four manufacturers who made diving equipment during WW2: Morse of Boston MA, Schrader of Brooklyn NY, Diving Equipment & Supply Co. of Milwaukee WI, and Miller Dunn of Miami FL. This is a Morse of Boston MA reproduction.
It is a great historical reproduction piece and it displays very well! Just the item for your nautical-themed décor or office.
