The clock does not run reliable - it runs for about 15 seconds and then stops. The bell works and the second hand is missing. It has the physical wear you would expect for something of its age and use.
Seamen stand four hour'watches'. A bell has traditionally been struck each half hour of the watch. These clocks were intended for real service at sea.
