Description

For over a century America's oldest and renowned clock manufacturer, Chelsea Clock Company has handcrafted exquisite time instruments in Massachusetts.

This distinctive Ships Bell, handcrafted timepiece signals the passing of time with gentle, rich-sounding chimes – eight bells at 4, 8 and 12 o’clock to mark the end of a mariner’s four-hour watch, with one bell the first half-hour after, plus one additional bell with each subsequent half-hour.

Precision engineered, this signature Chelsea Ship's Bell Clock features a classic, hand-silvered dial, 364 precision brass parts – many plated with gold – and 11 jewel movements, all of which are made in-house at Chelsea, Massachusetts facility ensure accuracy in time and enduring quality for generations.

Paired with a classic Ship’s Bell Barometer, designed as a companion piece to the Ship’s Bell Clock, features a double bellows holosteric movement that mechanically measures changes in atmospheric pressure to foretell changing weather. Readings of “Stormy,” “Rain,” “Change,” “Fair,” or “Very Dry” are handsomely displayed on the piece’s rich, hand-silvered dial. A thermometer tube that provides accurate temperature readings.

The Ship’s Bell Clock features a lacquered solid forged brass case, plated with polished nickel, a hinged bezel; paired with a traditional mahogany base.
