The main feature of nautical wall clocks is durability both for the case as well as the glass; solidly designed they often include splash and scratch resistant qualities. They are usually sold with all the necessary instructions, with the precise type of batteries required and the mounting hardware specific to the model. Moreover, most such items have a lifetime warranty, batteries being the only changeable item in their structure.
