Take the St Ives Tide Home

After huge demand, the design team at Bramwell Brown has created the Limited Edition St Ives Tide Clock. Depicting the ever-popular Cornish harbour town and beautifully bringing it to life.

Handmade at our workshop in Hampshire, Great Britain.

"We absolutely love it!"

From £575

The moving mechanical scene has local fishing boats bobbing on the waves, as the tide rises and falls. We've even included the well-known cheeky pair of seals that can usually be found at the end of the harbour pier. What else can you spot?!

Being hand-assembled in limited numbers, this Tide Clock is truly a home addition to cherish, whether you're near or far from the Cornish coast.

no, it's not magic

And it doesn't need wifi

Incredibly easy to setup, the clock has a electro-mechanical tidal timer inside. This ensures it is indicative of what the tide you set it to is also doing. Take a look at our video to learn more.

Clever electro-mechanical design

The scenery updates every 30 minutes to keep track of the average moving tide. Like all Tide Clocks, it is set to work on a semi-diurnal timer of 12 hours 25 minutes and 15 seconds between high tides. Just set the Clock to 'High Tide' when your favourite coastal location is also in flood, and you're in sync 👍

highest quality materials

Our Tide Clocks are handmade at our workshop in Hampshire, England. The care and attention each clock receives during assembly is matched in quality by the parts we use to make them.

How do I set the Tide Clock up?

Your Tide Clock's unboxing is meant to be fun, easy and, if needed, educational!

The Tide Clock mechanism (seperate to the silent clock hands) runs on batteries. Once these are inserted, the clock can be switched on. It will do one or two full rotations of the tide scenery and then sit at "high tide".

We then recommend that you consult your local tide times via the internet and when your next high water is at a convenient time, turn the clock off and then on again. This will mean the clock is at 'high tide' when your local real tide is also at the same. The clock is now in sync and will move every half an hour to update itself 😊

How accurate is the Tide Clock?

The electronics inside the clock precisely measure the 24 hours, 50 minutes and 30 seconds of a lunar day. The gravitational pull of the moon, along with local other factors, is what creates tidal movement. This synchronisation between the tide and the moon is very regular but there will be small variations during each month. We would expect that, between full moons, your Tide Clock (or any Tide Clock) might be at most, 30 - 60 minutes out. Returning back to accuracy again as the averages converge once more. Because of this, fine tuning or adjustment during the month is not recommended. You can read more in our Tide Clock instruction manual here.

Can the clock be relied on for safety at sea?

No! We have designed the clock to be a beautiful and helpfully indicative depiction of your local tide. With this in mind, the clock should not be used to plan any activities where your safety may be at risk from the tide. Please consult professional tide charts and other guidance regarding personal safety!
