    Where is the pointer for the barometer?

    • Visually Appealing

    • Impractical

      Comments about Porthole Clock & Barometer with Plaque:

      All barometers are supposed to have a movable pointer that you set so you can see if the pressure has risen or fallen over time. The insert with this one tells you how to use this pointer. Except there isn't one.

        Kim Kardashian not Julia Child

        Comments about Porthole Clock & Barometer with Plaque:

        If I need a cook for the galley, I'm going with Julia Child. Kim Kardashian might be better eye candy but I'm not going to trust her to get the job done. Likewise this unit. Consider it decor. The bulkhead real estate on my 36 footer is too precious to allocate to peacock feathers.
        These were a gift and, yes, they're very pretty. But I, tactfully, explained to the giver that my aging eyes needed larger instruments for reading from a distance. At the same time I upgraded to the lifetime guaranteed finish of a different brand. About twice the cost and well worth it for the boat.
        These might be pretty for office or den decor. Last, mine didn't have lenses over the face and I can't tell if they are even meant to.

        Gift has potential but has issues

        By Sailor

        from New Rochelle, NY

        About Me Advanced

        Pros

        • Visually Appealing

        Cons

        • Cardboard cards warped
        • Unusual battery size

        Best Uses

        • For office use only

        Comments about Porthole Clock & Barometer with Plaque:

        Please inspect the item carefully prior to purchasing, regardless whether it is for yourself or a gift. The cardboard "cards" behind the barometer and clock can be warped and interfere with the functionality. Opinion - this is for office decor only; it will not do well in a marine environment based on construction - I disagree with their claim. The batteries are difficult to find; R1 type. [@] does not typically carry it. We are working with West Marine to rectify it.It's hard to say whether I would recommend this product. It looks great, but the quality may be questionable.

            This is almost purely decorative. I can live without a barometer or a clock. But this is a very pretty addition to any cabin.
