Tom...What's the problem with the stems on the other two? These are pretty easy movements to repair.

hi Roger : the stems are loose and come out when pulled and I can't set the time. They both have obviously the very same problem. I bought them on eBay from two different sellers as working but no sales to Canada , so I had them shipped to my US shipping address and by the time they were forwarded to me it was too late to file a not as advertised complaint Roll Eyes do you fix them ? They both run and keep good time and the up/down indicators work fine.

Hi Folks. Tom I am going to hijack your post to ask a question if I may.
I have Model 22 in its original case that I would like to mount on a small table of some description. Does any one have information of what would have been used while these watches were in use on board.
Thank you.

John,
If I'm not mistaken there were two versions of the Model 22. One was the gimbal mounted version shown earlier in this thread. The other is a deck watch, which is like a large pocket watch that was stored in a wooden case. That watch would have been matched to the gimbal mounted model 22 (or model 21 if the ship had that) and carried around the ship to set the other clocks.

Thanks Roger. Mine is in the gimbled Box (like in Toms Pics). I had seen somewhere that they were often mounted to a small wooden table that was in turn affixed to the floor. I would like to make something to mount it on for my den but wondered if anyone knew what was used or how mounted. Mine has a wooden plate on the bottom of the outer case with 2 holes for what appears to be holes used to screw it down to something. It is this something I am wondering about.

As far as I'm aware this was to screw the clock in place on the wall shelf or table in the wheelhouse to keep it safe in wild and inclement weather and/or from the violent shocks of battle Wink
