This article is something very exceptional and rarely offered, an authentic Robt Roskell Liverpool ship clock 1430/58966 maker to the admiralty. Two-day marine chronometer with 56-hour power reserve indicator and ratchet wrench.
The state of preservation is exceptional, the clock works perfectly and keeps the two keys of its two boxes, as you can see the clock goes in a hardwood box and this box in turn is installed into another hardwood box surrounded by a leather strap. This is one of those few chances to get hold of a piece that is rarely found. Total guarantee of operation.
