Tides are influenced by the orbit of the moon around the earth. To show this, Nauticalia’s Tide clock has an extra hand, which makes a complete sweep at the lunar rate of approximately 12.5 hours instead of the normal 12, indicating the state of the tide for a chosen location. They have hefty solid cast brass casings, scuttle clamps, bevelled glass fronts and brass hands with black subsidiary indicators on light cream faces.
Outside diameter 9″, face diameter 5.5″, depth 2.25″. Diameter 9″.
IMPORTANT: because the lunar cycle varies with the Earth’s, there are times in a month when actual tides are a few minutes ahead or behind the clock.
