Does anyone have any idea what this could be ?
Closed

It belongs to my friend , who inherited it amongst his grandfather's things . The middle disc rotates . The one on the left shows the time around the world , while the one on the right is a 100 year calendar , showing average monthly temperatures . The print is very small !
Any ideas folks ?

I would say it is something to do with boats.

If I’m reading it correctly the calendar is only from 2000 -2099. That’s not as old as I was expecting.
Is it a replica?

It could be used as a partial guide for the safe loading of ships cargo using the plimsoll line , as time of the year , temperature , weather , expected wave height / storms etc all play a part in determining maximum load capacity for any given journey Steve.

It looks as though it might have come from a ship. The dial on the right is a perpetual calendar and the left one is time zones.

The sort of handy gadget for use on the Cutty Sark or other tea clippers.
