Patek Philippe And Lunn's 175th Anniversary Titanic Table Clock.

To commemorate the 175th anniversary of both Patek Phillipe, and Lunn's, the Belfast based jeweler.  The clock, titled the Titanic table clock, is the first time in Patek's history they have produced a unique clock for a United Kingdom based retailer.  

The idea apparently came during a visit by Patek's chairman Thierry Stern to Belfast's titanic quarter, and a tour of the shipbuilder Harland and Wolff, where the plans for Titanic and its sister ship Olympic were drawn up.

The clock  took 200 hours to create, and feature 25 meters of gold ribbon, and 22 different enamel colours.  A cloisonne enamel dial plate in gold with black enameled large Roman numerals and a dome that illustrates the Titanic's domed glass ceiling.

The Titanic clock is on display in the Lunn's showroom in Queen's Arcade, Belfast, and is a one of a kind item.
