Genuine SEIKO vintage steel clock started sailing on cruise ships in the 70s. The quick history of the Seiko Japanese clock: After having sailed hundreds of thousands of miles in one of the many cabins of large cruise ships that carried Seiko clocks, this clock is found on the Indian coast shipyards for a complete salvaging of vessels. Some parts of these imposing ships are recycled, other jetties, and the most beautiful things are collected and collected by the amateurs. Like these vintage clocks. Made in the 70s in Japan these “slave” clocks were all connected by electric wire in the boat to the mother clock which was located in the captain’s cabin. This set the time of the boat at each change of time zone and put the hundreds of clocks on time at the same time. This clock had originally a secondary slave connection but has been now converted to battery operated movement.
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.
