BULOVA B7910 Maritime Quartermaster DESK MANTEL CLOCK
A Bulova Maritime Quartermaster
Quartz Desk Clock, model B7910, in a gorgeous 8-sided Wood enclosure.
We are pleased to present this Bulova
Maritime Quartermaster Desk Clock for your consideration. It
is model B7910 and it features a gimbal mount for the Clock
(allowing it to be rotated to any position) which is secured
inside an 8-sided Wood enclosure with a beautiful Mahogany finish.
The Clock was given as an award to a company named Connecting
Devices, Inc., and there is an award plaque on the inside
of the top cover which is dated March 1, 1995.
The Clock is powered by a single AA
Battery (not included). We installed a Battery and set the Clock
to the current time. We let it run for 24 hours, and found it
to keep accurate time, precisely tracking the Clock on our computer.
The Alarm was tested and also found to be functional. The latch
for the lid seemed a little balky, but we found it to work fine
given a positive push downwards on the lid above the latch.
The Clock cabinet is 3-3/4 inches high
(closed), 6-1/2 inches wide (to the outside of the brass connectors
on the side), and 6 inches deep. The face on the Clock, measured
to the outside of the brass trim, is 3-1/2 inches in diameter.
The Clock weighs 1 pound 11 ounces. It is marked BULOVA
and QUARTZ on the face, with Made in Germany engraved
on the back of the Wood cabinet.
The Wood cabinet has a tiny chip at
the back, at the top edge. Some of the brass trim shows some
tarnish and light patina. One of the thin felt feet on the bottom
of the cabinet is missing. There is a small area of damage to
the brass on the inside of the rear Brass lid in the area of
the battery compartment - it appears a battery leaked at one
time causing slight damage near the perforations provided for
the alarm. Despite the past problem, the battery compartment
is clean and the Clock is undamaged. We rate the overall physical
condition as very good (see pictures).
This is a charming Desk or Mantel Clock
with a beautiful Octagonal Wood enclosure. It would make a wonderful
addition to any collection!
