    Strange this post didn't gave much answers over here...
    On a general antique forum I was told the clock might have been used on a submarine (because of the 24 h.dial ) and that the serial number is printed on the back.
    The number on the front is a US navy inventory number.

    Wish I could help but alas I know nothing about this.

    It is a neat piece and hope you can narrow it down.
    "Please", Thank You" and proper manners appreciated

    My greatest fear is that one day I will die and my wife will sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them

    My parents had a Chelsea "Mariners" mantle clock. Strictly civilian but not very much different. I was my job as a kid to wind it up ever few days.
