M.S Queen Victoria

Case Study

Dent's association with the naval, merchant and royal vessels is long documented and illustrious, so we were delighted to be asked to be involved with the new Cunard vessel Queen Victoria.

Queen Victoria is the second largest Cunarder ever built and for the first time in 168 years, three Queens sail together under the Cunard banner. Distinguished by her red and black livery, Queen Victoria is a true Cunarder proudly upholding our famous heritage and traditions. Her interiors are warmly reminiscent of a more gracious era with a dramatic three-tiered Grand Lobby and sumptuous marbles, woods, plush carpets, rich fabrics and soft furnishings that simply exude elegance.

Dent was commissioned to build a Victorian pillar clock for the Royal Arcade on board. As a company Dent created precision chronometers for navigation of ships including Cunard liners we are flattered and honoured that the association with Cunard continues into its third century with this installation. In 1841, Dent won the Royal Warrant as the official watch and clockmaker to Queen Victoria and HRH Albert Prince of Wales, which is “another fitting reason why we have chosen a Dent clock for this liner,” said Cunard president and MD Carol Marlow.
