I have just purchased this ships clock which seems to be running well, and dinging well.
But do not know what I actually have. Most of the Schatz marine clocks state mariner on them.
As you can tell by the pictures this is an 8 day 7 jewel model, 24 hour dial. Marked Schatz Ships Bell.
I have not yet opened it up, as I have not yet had time to, but will do in the next short while.
Is this an early or a late one, the dial is only 3 1/4 " across.
Any info on this one would be appreciated.
Thanks,
Bill

Hi Bill. I have a Schatz Royal Mariner, perhaps yours is a newer model than the one i have.From what i know the 7 jewels are in the platform escapement.

This movement may be the same one that you have in your clock.

Hi Bill
Some people call those Mini Mariners. I repaired one a couple months ago I think the date was 1974 (I'll have to see if I can find my notes on it to be sure), and exactly the movement Kevin posted above. With a tiny coil gong.
Nice little clocks my wife really liked the sound of the mini one over the larger ones.

I will likely open it up next week, if I can find the time, and will post pics when I do. Thanks for all your very useful information, both of you.
What I was wondering was all I could find was the Schatz Royal Mariner, could not even find a picture of the Schatz ships bell, but upon further checking I noted a Schatz and Sohne Ships Bell clock, with the same markings. So was thinking that that might be a later model, or what do I know possibly and earlier model, as I do not know when they might have joined to make these things. The barometer is also a Schatz. And do you know where I might find the front glass for these as they are both cracked ? Are these clocks collectable ?
Thanks again, and when I take it apart, there will likely be a marking on the movement.
Please forgive the really poor photos.
Bill

Timesavers sells round clock glass, both flat and convex. Replacing the barometer glass might be a challenge because it involves drilling a center hole for the adjustable hand. You will need a diamond bit or similar for that. If I were you I would purchase more than one glass in case it breaks during drilling.

Perrin near Toronto might have a glass for your clock, since you do live in Canada, Far as collectible not sure, i like mine too. It needs work.
