Does anyone know where to get one of these in the UK or Ireland?

http://www.accumall.com/Weather-Instruments/Products-by-Brand/Conant-Custom-Brass/Outdoor-Brass--Copper-Thermometer.html

I can only find them for sale in the US and they either won't deliver or it's prohibitively expensive.

Edit:

fixed link

Says "A simple white wall thermometer for everyday use in and around the home and garden."

Maybe a bit too plain but it'll do the job.

Link fixed now. Here it is again http://www.accumall.com/Weather-Instruments/Products-by-Brand/Conant-Custom-Brass/Outdoor-Brass--Copper-Thermometer.html

It's a traditional style I'm looking for and on a hinged wall mount as shown so it can be turned to face indoors.

Yorkie,

In answer to your query, may I suggest that you look up your own link?

http://www.accumall.com/Weather-Instruments/Products-by-Brand/Conant-Custom-Brass/Outdoor-Brass--Copper-Thermometer.html

Go down to the bottom of the page and note under the price the words

"Sold Out."

I recognise the clock at once as we had one in the engine room of the Kenya Jacaranda when I sailed on her maybe ten years ago . This clock was made in the good ole You-Ess-of-Aye by Chaney Instruments and was a very specialised bit of kit, built for a purpose now obsolete.

The reason they don't ship such clocks is the insides are very fragile and the clocks are almost guaranteed to arrive broken. Specially via e-bay.

However if you want to do your own search start with chandlers. Places like Dunlaoire, Crosshaven, Skibereen are good towns to start with in Ireland.

"marinestore" in Maldon, Essex(yeah! where the salt comes from) is one of the best chandlers in England and my invariable starting point for boat bits. But almost every port or marina has a chandlers.

Good hunting buddy and I hope all your shallots swell perfectly
