Featured Product: Chelsea Mariner Clock, Limited Edition Ship's Bell Clock

https://bellclocks.com/products/chelsea-mariner-limited-edition-ships-bell-clock


The Chelsea Mariner is considered one of the finest nautically-inspired clocks ever made in this country. The Mariner is a true masterpiece of American clock making, an exact reproduction of an original yacht wheel. The Mariner was first patented and produced by Chelsea Clock in 1911.

Please note: This Limited Edition may require additional time to produce - please inquire if time is of the essence.

Featuring our renowned chiming Ship’s Bell mechanism, this exquisite timepiece boasts 11 jewel movements and 364 brass and gold-plated precision parts.

Its forged solid brass bezel opens with the original “shield” hinge-and-latch design. The clock’s dial is painstakingly crafted of deeply etched brass that is hand silvered, enameled and lacquered.

The wood base and back are crafted of solid mahogany, while the wheel’s ring and base are finished using our own lustrous hand-rubbed copper bronze process and lacquered to prevent tarnish.

The Pilot model is also available for those collectors desiring wall display, and echoes the beauty and majesty of our famed Mariner clock. This magnificent nautically-inspired timepiece features all of the distinctive qualities of its mantle counterpart, including our exclusive handcrafted chiming Ship’s Bell mechanism.

Ship's Bell Story

Mariners have used a unique bell code to tell time at sea for hundreds of years. The code is based on the crew's typical workday routine while the vessel is under way. A ship at sea requires constant attention throughout the day's twenty-four hours. The day is therefore divided into six four-hour periods, each called a "watch." Similarly, the crew is segmented into three divisions. Division members then stand their individually assigned duties on two watches per day, with eight hours off duty between watches. To rotate each division's watch times, the Evening Watch is periodically divided into two watches. These are called Dog Watches because they "dog" the watch schedule for all divisions ahead by one watch period.
