Seventy-five years ago, Captain Philip Van Horn Weems (USNR) founded this Company with a single purpose in mind: to improve sea, air, and space navigation methods and safety. The precise measurement of time has been central to the progress of navigation throughout navigation history. To commemorate the 75 years of rich heritage of Weems & Plath® that is closely linked to this man who strove to perfect the field of navigation, we are pleased to offer our elegant Anniversary Collection of ship's clocks and barometers.Each piece in this series is created from solid, forged brass that is hand polished and lacquered. The collection includes the finest German movements, dials, hands, and components available in the world. The distinctive dial of each instrument is intricately etched to create a subtle but rich pattern.Each instrument is labeled with a unique serial number and is provided with complete instructions, mounting hardware, and a fresh battery as required.
