Greenwich Mean Time 24 hour Wall Clock
Natural rustic colors of this unique handcrafted wooden wall clock with 24 hour clock face will make a perfect match for any modern space that pretends to be a vintage one.The Shepherd Gate Clock is mounted on the wall outside the gate of the Royal Greenwich Observatory building in Greenwich, Greater London. The clock, an early example of an electric clock, was a slave mechanism controlled by electric pulses transmitted by a master clock inside the main building. The network of master and slave clocks was constructed and installed by Charles Shepherd in 1852. The clock by the gate was probably the first to display Greenwich Mean Time to the public, and is unusual in using the 24-hour analogue dial.
Our wooden clock is made of many layers of Baltic birch, painted wood stain and acrylics. Handcrafted galvanized brass screws are used in the clock.
