Breezy beach walks, wild swims and lazy days on the open water. Every day’s an adventure when you live by the sea, and the Tide Clock tells you when it’s time to stretch your legs or pull on your wetsuit. Bobbing boats in the quaint harbour rise and fall in tune with local tides, so you can plan more of the good life while giving your coastal home the handmade finishing touch it deserves.

  • Mini animated harbour in a clock – watch the waves move and the light house flash as the clever mechanical scenery brings the little harbour to life.
  • Delightfully uncomplicated set up synchronise the clock when your local tide is highest, and the semi-diurnal timer will do the rest, tracking the tides without needing an internet connection.
  • Plan sea swims, beach walks or boat launches the moving scenery is connected to a central dial, so you can count the hours until high or low tide.
  • Happy to blend in, or stand out proudly hanging in your kitchen, hallway or your room with the sea views, it adds even more homeliness to coastal living.
  • Impress your visitors push the little button on the bottom of the clock when friends and family are round, and watch them be amazed as it goes through a fully animated tidal cycle.
  • A good size the Tide Clock's frame measures 33cm diameter (13 inches) and 12.5cm deep (5 inches) – big enough to be a focal point, but small enough to sit alongside other wall art and furnishings.
  • Want a different harbour scene? - our design and assembly team can create a fully Bespoke Tide Clock that shows your favourite part of the coast. Or, you can vote for the next location we design for open sale.
  • Daddy it’s time for a swim – “The Tide Clock has turned my six-year-old grandson into a good little swimmer,” says happy customer Lorraine. Read more reviews.
  • 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 at the seaside
    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 that assembled it for you.

  • Personalise your clock with a plaque
    A Tide Clock is a wonderful item to mark an event, person, house purchase or memory. The only thing better? Having one assembled specially for the occasion, with a plaque attached to the back of the clock. The Bramwell Brown assembly team are always incredibly proud to make personalised clocks.

  • Dimensions
    33cm (13 inches) diameter

  • 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.

  • 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.

    Wow what a gorgeous clock

    I have had my eye on the Bramwell Brown tide clock for a while now and decided to go for it. I am super pleased with it. I live by the sea and go for regular beach walks and sea rowing. How fab to be able to know the tidal conditions at a glance. So beautiful and elegant too, I particularly love the little flashing light house.

    Thanks Bramwell Brown what a lovely piece of art in a clock.

    A truly beautiful thing!

    What a wonderful, unique clock this is. We recently remodelled our kitchen and one of the first things we promised ourselves was this clock. We live near the sea so its practicality as well as its beauty really appealed to us. Not just a great timepiece but a work of art. We love it!

    It’s a wonderful clock

    We love our new clock and it’s beautiful construction. The tide clock is really accurate in telling ebbing and flooding tides and the moving display is lovely. We particularly love the flashing lighthouse. Very pleased with our purchase that has already been admired by lots of people.

    A great timepiece that also lets me know when it’s time for a wonderful dip in the sea.
