Chelsea Ship’s Bell Clock
This distinctive, new in box, handcrafted seagoing timepiece, is created by the most famous marine clock maker in the world, Chelsea Clock of Boston USA. It signals the passing of the watches with rich-sounding bell strikes – 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. Behind its classic, hand-silvered dial, 364 precision brass parts – many plated with gold – and 11 jewel movements, all of which are made in Chelsea, Massachusetts, ensure accuracy in time and enduring quality for years to come. Only 500 of these clocks were made, making this clock both a collectible and an investment piece. Sells for $4500 retail direct from Chelsea…
