Unique Personalised Tide Clock
Our engraved wooden tide clocks make the perfect gift for someone living by the coast or anyone interested in coastal conditions, and are ideal for birthdays and house warming. These wooden tide clocks are designed and made in our West Sussex workshop, and are constructed from full-length stave prime A-grade English or European oak. Each tide clock measures 23cm diameter and is 2.7cm thick.
Synchronised to the moon’s cycle, the tide clock gives you an innovative and convenient guide to tides at your chosen location, indicating the number of hours remaining until high and low water. The face is engraved with a single chapter ring and numbers counting down to high and low tide. A single black spade-shaped hour hand is provided and a red sweep hand indicates the clock is working. Each wooden tide clock is fitted with a special quartz movement that completes one full rotation every 12 hours and 25 minutes rather than 12 hours for a conventional clock. The movement requires 1 x AA battery which we supply with the clock.
Tide clocks may be personalised with your own message or a design from our range of 2D and 3D motifs. We can also create your own unique personalised cipher to add that special touch. The numbers and text on the clock are engraved in font Book Antiqua and, if you wish to match these, please ensure you choose this font for any engraving.
The option that sets our personalised tide clock apart from all others is the ability to have a custom map area engraved on the face. This is extremely popular and ensures the clock we make for you is 100% unique. Additionally, we can engrave a special, hidden message on the back of the clock if required.
Some of the images here show the tide clock including a 2D dinghy motif, but a wide variety of motifs is available from our extensive library of images – please contact us for details. A motif is not obligatory but we can add a kite-surfer, surf-boarder, yacht, anchor, ship’s wheel or other nautical-themed image.
Each tide clock is finished with a number of coats of fine mineral oil giving a subtle, lustrous finish.
