Chelsea Clock discontinues all 24 Hour Clocks

Chelsea Clock Company discontinued all 24 Hour clocks without notice to dealers, effective March 1, 2008. BellClocks is very disappointed in Chelsea's decision, and have voiced our disappointment to their National Sales Director and Executive VP. Unfortunately, the decision stands.

Chelsea also discontinued a few other models of Timemaster. The lack of notice by Chelsea Clock prevented from providing any notice to our customers, and we apologize for any inconvenience.

This decision removes all Chelsea Timemaster 24 hour military models, including one of our best sellers, the 40090 24 hour quartz model from the Chelsea line. The decision claims all 24 hour models, both brass and phenolic case models, quartz and mechanical movements. A few other Timemaster models were also discontinued.

Most 12 hour Chelsea Timemaster models remain available, at increased pricing (see our article regarding the Chelsea price increase).

PLEASE NOTE: BellClocks offers one of the only remaining major lines of 24 hour clock, the Ocean Clocks Maritime 24 Hour series.

As always, we're happy to answer your questions. Please don't hesitate to contact us.

Chelsea Clock price increase

We wanted to address numerous questions received via email support, and customer support 800 number, regarding the significant price increase customers have experienced with Chelsea Clock products.

On February 25, 2008 Chelsea Clock Company notified dealers of a major price increase to be effective March 1, 2008. This is the second major price increase in as many years, and while we apologize for any inconvenience, the lack of notice from Chelsea precluded BellClocks from giving notice to our customers of the price hike.

We are noticing a trend of last minute pricing increases among several of our suppliers and manufacturers. Our best advise is to purchase at the best price you can as soon as you can - we don't think the trend will stop anytime soon.
