3H99  The Yachtsman

This is the clock with the nautical flavor that is "shipshape and right" for office or den.  Finished in gleaming polished brass enameled numerals.  It is a popular gift.

The numeral ring was a laminated piece of felt that showed through the holes in the brass.  The color fades over the years so when you fix one, rotate the ring about 15 degrees and the original color will show again.  These clocks are very easily damaged.  The bakelite can just wasn't thick enough to absorb much punishment without cracking.  My ivory one above has extra washers where the spokes meet the case.  These washers aren't present on my brown one but I don't know the story there.
