Baltimore, West Cork - Limited Edition Tide Clock

A mechanically animated Tide Clock capturing one of West Cork's finest seaside villages – Baltimore – and bringing it to life. Whether you’re a local mariner or a seasonal visitor, consider taking this unique time piece to your home port.

The clock features a Baltimore streetscape with Bushes Bar and Jacobs Hotel. Whilst in the foreground, the infamous Sherkin Ferry and Sea Safari are part of a practical yet beautiful moving mechanical scene with tide dial. This clock is a future family heirloom!

Select a frame colour:

  • A classic vantage point of Baltimore, West Cork, with all the goings on of village life, including Jacobs Hotel, the Yellow Door Gallery, Bushes Bar and the sailing club.
  • The little mechanical scene shows the Sherkin Ferry and Baltimore Sea Safari amongst other harbour traffic, going up and down in front of the village, moving in time with the local Cork tides.
  • Working in the same way as our regular Tide Clocks, the Baltimore Tide Clock accurately keeps track of the day's Tides, like a regular tide clock does, just in a more expressive way. (You can learn more how our Tide Clocks work here.)
  • All our clocks are made with love at our workshop in Hampshire, UK. And, as with with all Limited Edition designs, we will will make only 250 of these very special clocks.
  • FREE shipping within the UK, EU and USA. For deliveries to Ireland and the rest of the EU, all post-Brexit custom charges are paid for by Bramwell Brown - so there are no unexpected costs or delays whatsoever.
  • After popular demand from Cork locals, Baltimore was chosen as part of Bramwell Brown's growing range of Tide Clocks. If you have a coastal location close to your own heart that you'd love our design team to make into a clock for you, we could either make you a incredibly special 'one off' Tide Clock, (complete with your own choice of scene and bobbing boats!). Or you can vote for your preferred spot here


  • 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.

  • Watch a full day tides in one go
    The ‘mechanically animated’ illustrations can be demonstrated to friends and family at the push of the ‘Mechanimate’ button on the clock – it will then complete an entire tidal loop with boats bobbing up and down along the way. Swimwear and ice cream is optional!

  • Hand Assembled in Great Britain
    All of our patented, British-designed Tide Clocks are crafted by hand at our workshop in Hampshire, England – delicate, skilled work.

  • Sustainable Design
    We’ve designed the clock to work for many happy years in your home. It’s fully serviceable (if it ever needs to be) – with all the parts available in our workshop.

  • Easy to hang (indoors!)
    A single screw in the wall can hold the clock and you get a nifty hanging guide in the box. This clock is for indoor use only – and please don't hang it within 50cm (20 inches) of a radiator. The delicate mechanics don’t enjoy direct heat.

  • Certificate of Authenticity
    A badge of honour for every Bramwell Brown Clock we make, signed by the team members at the workshop that assembled it for you.

  • 60-day returns, so you can be sure it’s right for you
    We’re sure you’re going to love this clock. But if you change your mind, for whatever reason, just send it back to us within 60 days of delivery for an exchange or full refund. You can read more about our hassle-free process here.

  • Dimensions
    33cm (13 inches) diameter
    12.5cm (5 inches) deep

  • Quality quartz movement
    German-made quartz mechanism keeps the clock hands on time without any ticking noise.

  • Quality materials
    Steel clock frame is hand-finished. The Black, Grey or Blue coloured powder coats are silky smooth. Copper-plated frames have a nice clear lacquer finish to prevent any oxidisation over time. Printed card clock face sits behind the anodised metal minute and hour hands. The harbour artwork print is onto lightweight artboard. The clock window is shatterproof Lumex.

  • Runs on regular batteries
    Included, of course, with all clocks.

  • Free UK and Ireland delivery (with no post-Brexit delays or added costs to Irish customers)
    Once neatly packed up at the workshop, the clocks are shipped by trackable courier. If you're in the UK, delivery is in 1-2 working days, a bit longer for trips to Ireland. Orders placed before 2pm Monday-Friday are shipped that same day.

  • Free EU and USA
    We love sending our clocks around the world! We use reliable, fully tracked couriers. All orders to EU countries and the USA will arrive with no duties or local tariffs payable. Read more about our shipping.

  • A note on unusual tide patterns
    Our Tide Clocks forecast the tide state on a semi-diurnal mechanism. They therefore time the twice daily rise and fall of a standard semi-diurnal tide, (as found in all of the United Kingdom, most of Europe and the East Coast of the USA) that results from the gravitational pull of the moon. If you are in a location not listed above or with a known unusual tide then you can read more here.
