    Default Kriegsmarine U Boat / ships Clock WW11

    I have one of these that was bought home by my grandfather Albert Edward Fuller who was decorated and mentioned in the Battle of the Graf Spey.

    I have sporadically done quite bit of research on this clock but managed to loose some of it.

    I've always found it hard to sell the clock but have decided to now - its time. (scuse the pun)
    I am researching information about it and would be grateful to know despite selling anything anyone can add to its history.

    I will try to post photos ( before unsucessfully) again and if not will try as before in a previous post find a link of something not dissimilar.

    Am I posting in the correct forum?

    ~Wish me luck.
    Kind Regards
    Nicky

    Hello Nicky, Welcome to the Forum! It's a nice looking ship's clock-does it still work? What are you looking to get for it and do you have the documentation of it as coming from the Graf Spee? I would be quite interested in it if it could be verified.

    Hi,

    Yes it does work. It also has the original key. One of the hands came off but is easily repairable
    I doubt it was from the Graf Spey ( sorry if I confused you). My grandfather was in the battle but I know not what where he got the clock from as he died when my mother was 4 years old and of course I did not listen properly to my grandmothers stories when younger.

    I remember reading about how quite a lot of these were taken from battle ships and were sold for next to nothing.
    The Graf Spey is at the bottom of the ocean>?. so doubtful its from that ship. If it was it would be highly sought after and very valuable I know.

    I can take more pictures if you like or even perhaps at some point upload on utube so one can see it 'ticking'.

    Thanks for all or any input
    Nicky

    My clock was made by Kieninger Obergfell and I phoned them but they no longer trade under that name or something along those lines

    Would have been really something, had it actually Been from the Graf Spee, but regardless, it is still a fairly decent clock. The one in the link is absurdly priced, however, and I don't think the seller should be planning that vacation to Fiji just yet. What kind of price were you looking at asking?
