The Schatz Royal Mariner has the unique property of being a ship's bell clock. Ships bell clock rang the bells for each half-hour of a ships watch and ships watches normally ran for 4 hours.
The model at left has an external bell. There are other models that were framed in a spoked ships wheel and had an internal bell.
These are still being made today by Nauticalia. If you want the old-style mechanical movement then make sure you get a Royal Mariner rather than the battery operated, quartz movement, Ocean Mariner.
I've also seen a thin wall clock version but it has none of the charm of the ships clocks of old.
Here is a video of the ships wheel version of the clock ringing 7 and 8 bells.
