Larger 'Mechanimated' Tide Clock in Blue Frame
(53cm diameter, 12.5cm deep)
A fun and innovative redesign of the traditional tide clock
‘Mechanimated’ harbour scene moves every half an hour to keep up to speed with the Tide's changes
Follows semi-diurnal tidal movements once you set it to local timings
'Demonstration button' on the bottom of the frame allows you to make the scenery whir round a full tide cycle so you can show friends and family what it does!
Regular clock hands kept ticking with a precision German-made Quartz mechanism - no annoying ticking noise, though!
Hand-crafted mild steel frame with smooth powder coated finish
Designed and lovingly hand-assembled at the Bramwell Brown workshop in Great Britain
For every Tide Clock Sold, Bramwell Brown will donate £2.50 to the Marine Conservation Society
Black, Grey, Chrome and Copper Frames are available but at extra cost
Runs on regular batteries (that are, of course, supplied with the clock)
Please note, some few areas like The Solent in Southern England do not have a regular semi-diurnal tide so the Tide Clock will not work at these locations.
Depending on when you place your order, there could be 1 - 2 weeks' lead time so that the clock can be completed at the workshop prior to being made ready for shipping.
Unfortunately, due to their very delicate nature, our large clocks cannot be shipped outside of the mainland UK at present. For more information on shipping is available here.
A progression of the traditional Tide Clock that combines the visual intrigue of mechanically moving art with functionality to make it a really useful reference.
With a semi-diurnal timer at its core, once set to local tide timings, the clock displays half-hourly updates on the current tidal direction and time until next high and low tides over the course of an average lunar day. In addition to these dials, the tide’s current state is visually depicted in a mechanically animated harbour.
Boats and waves rise and fall throughout the day so the artwork in the display window is brought to life. An interactive push button allows you to demonstrate a full tide cycle whenever you like!
Designed to be a useful instrument that makes you smile whenever you look at it, the clock will become a talking point wherever it is proudly displayed in your home. An excellent and unusual gift for both sailors and those who love being by the sea!
Dimensions: diameter 35cm, depth 12.5cm.
