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.
