    Photos above of a Seth Thomas 24 hour military clock that came from Point Cook Royal Australian Air Force base in Victoria Australia. Works perfectly. I mounted it on a board with a model of the USS Alabama and the ships badge for effect (USS Alabama because I visited it in Mobile in 1980). Can anyone give me any details re year etc.

      If you look at the back of the movement (works of the clock) there should be a date stamped, i.e. 3-44 representing March 1944.

      You may have a model Seth Thomas called the "Ship's Lever No. 6" from circa 1915. Your example could have been manufactured several years before or after that approximate date.

      It's described as an 8-day lever movement, black bakelite case wardroom or deck ship's timepiece. Height should be 7 3/4 inches it that is the model you have.

      If that answers your questions, please indicate "Mystery Solved" in your post.

      Thanks for sharing.

      If the approximate dates are accurate, your clock would have been made around the time that the 5th USS Alabama (SP-1052) was made and "enrolled" in a Naval Reserve capacity. That is according to Wikipedia article.
