Superb Hms Rodney Zenith Deck Watch And Case For Sale

Superb Hms Rodney Zenith Deck Watch And Case

This superb and rare Royal Navy deck watch was reputedly from HMS Rodney which was broken up here in Fife in 1948. Rodney was present at the destruction of Bismarck in 1941 and scored many hits on the doomed Kriegsmarine vessel.The watch itself is a Swiss made Zenith 51mm caliber 19-34-3-T. The beautifully simple 16 jewel movement is gold plated with Breguet overcoil hairspring and 'semi-swansneck' microregulation. The back is marked "HS" for Hydrographic Service, who dealt with timekeeping on HM ships.In excellent condition and a fine timekeeper, it winds and sets perfectly although, after all these years a service may now be in order. It comes complete with the mahogany glass fronted box with which it was attached to a bulkhead on ship.According to the internet and the excellent Concise Guide to Military Timepieces 1880-1990 by Z M Wesolowski, Zenith supplied these watches to the Royal Navy as deck chronometers in 1942. But the serial number on this one, 3286356, suggests a 1940 / 41 date of manufacture. Regardless, it's an excellent Royal Navy timepiece.A rare and useful ships chronometer with an intriguing history seldom seen is such fine £7.00 UK, £13.00 EU, £16.00 World Buy with confidence - I've sold over 250 binoculars and telescopes in the last few years to delighted collectors.
