The Seth Thomas Clock Company has been an American clock-making company from 1813 until the 1980s. The company manufactured the four-sided brass centerpiece which keeps time in Grand Central Station, New York, as well as the Seth Thomas ship's clocks for World War II Navy ships. If your mantel, wall, or office needs a timeless timepiece, consider Seth Thomas. An example of a vintage, authentic ship's clock is signed and numbered, with brass movement and an 11-jewel platform.
