Waltham 8 Day Ship Clock in Mahogany Case and Key Early 20th Century Chronometer

Waltham 8 Day Ship Clock in Mahogany Case Chronometer

Waltham Clock company started in 1850 and and ended around 1957.

8 Day Chronometer Gimbaled Ships Clock in a Mahogany case has a two part opening case. The top lid, opens with the original key, has a numb that is inserted in to unlatch the top. The top case has clear glass. The second opening exposes the clock for winding and also to lock the gimbal. When unlocked you can swing the clock to wind the 8 day movement or spin 180 degrees to have the backside of the clock facing up. 
The clock is a crown wound and it winds freely, the second hand is not moving, it has but now it is not, meaning that the clock will need to be cleaned and lubricated and maintenance serviced. Most manual clocks and watches will need to be serviced, this help protect and keep these fine precision time pieces going. 
I have not opened the back to get the serial number but similar clocks and gimbal chronometers are circa early 20th C. 
The Mahogany case has amazing craftsmanship, polished inset brass corners and the original brass name plate with Waltham is on the front.

The Chronometer has the original working key.
Size: case is approx 5 x 5 x 5 inches
Condition: The clock is running but stops and starts, meaning it needs a good cleaning. The Glass crystal has a scratch on the left side, the glass is not broken but is scratched. No other noticeable damage to the clock. The Case is very fine with a scratch on the backside and the side of the case, please see the images for details.
