Featured Product: Chelsea Ship's Bell Clock, 4.5" Brass on Mahogany Base

https://bellclocks.com/products/chelsea-ships-bell-clock-4-5-brass-on-mahogany-base

The classic Chelsea Ship's Bell Clock, 4.5" Brass on Mahogany Base, with Hinged Bezel.

This distinctive, 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.

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.

Since the first patented Ship’s Bell left our factory in 1900, it has been held as the standard by which all other Chelsea clocks are measured.

The Ship’s Bell Clock is available in 4 1/2 inch, 6 inch and 8 1/2 inch dial sizes.
Matching Ship's Bell Barometer is also available.

The Ship’s Bell clock features a lacquered solid forged brass case, hinged bezel shown here on a solid mahogany traditional base.

Presentation Gift Box included.

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.
