This vintage slave clock was produced by the famous watch company, Citizen. The manufacturing number for this model NTS-2S clock is 4546 and it was produced in 1996.
Slave clocks are clocks that depend upon another clock for the accuracy of it’s time. These were widely used in ships, businesses, and public schools. Slave clocks would be set up throughout the building/ship and would be electronically wired to a master clock that would ensure all clocks were on the same time.
This vintage slave nautical wall clock measures 8.5 inches in diameter and will extend 2.75 inches when mounted to the wall. There are 3 holes on the back side to assist in mounting the clock to a wall. This clock weighs 1.8 pounds.
This clock is made of steel in and the original paint is a soft green color. On the inside, the manufacturer’s name “Citizen” can be found. The clock has a thumb screw on the side which allows access to the battery mechanism inside. The clock takes one AA battery. We have tested this clock and we can confirm that it does work.
Big Ship Salvage scours the world for nautical antique lights, décor and other items related to the Nautical Life. Brass, copper, stainless steel and sometimes aluminum materials are used to make-up the vintage lights that we find. We soda-blast the old paint off, remove the old wiring and polish before they arrive in our warehouse. Then, we rewire with UL listed bulb sockets and wiring harnesses and get ready for purchase. They are now ready to warm your home, business or restaurant with that nautical feeling we all desire.
