Dating from 1986, this German-made Glashütte Type 1-71 quartz marine chronometer clock is a fine quality desk clock that keeps excellent time, to within a second in a week.
The silvered dial has gold hands with subsidiary seconds below. It is in good condition, and marked with the serial number 2778.
The quartz movement is powered by four D-cell batteries.
The screw-on bezel conceals a neat sprung well which houses the tool for turning the hands. There is also a reset button to co-ordinate the time exactly with another source. The dial is signed MADE IN GDR beneath the bezel. The bezel and mask are gilt painted with a hammered finish.
The hinged glazed mahogany box has side brass carrying handles, and bearing a plaque with the serial number.
