The company also offered marine installations, outfitting ocean liners such as RMS Franconia of the Cunard Line with electric clocks that told the same time on every deck, and exported its timekeeping systems all over the world.
From 1898 Synchronome was based in London's Clerkenwell, then Alperton in the 1930s, and Wiltshire in the 1960s. Today our clocks are made on the English-Welsh border, at Hay-on-Wye.view the collection
