It is good to see another one.

I think removeing the paint was a mistake, as these were originally painted black.

This is the first I have seen with the original finish intact. Very Nice!!

If you know where in Norway then we could at least narrow it down.

As it happens my father-in-law also has one of these clocks, the face is a little rubbed in places. Looks like someone tried to 'clean' it a little too vigorously. It came from Narvik after the war, so belonged to one of the ships moored there in May '45, which one we'll never know.

Default Clock information.

Nice clocks,i have 2 German navy clocks with " N " marking,both of them comes from Norway,one of them is from a German Uboote.I think its difficult to find any information about witch wessel the clock belonged to,if someone have any information about this ,it have been interesting.

Regards from Norway.

I just saw something very interesting in a uboat coffee table book. I was checking out internal photos of the boat and noticed that the clock was mounted in the radio operators area. Just above the table top. Now the interesting thing...it was brass in color. No black paint at all. Hmmm....
