Exclusively for Chelsea Clock, renowned furniture makers Thos. Moser crafted a distinctive base for our venerable Ship’s Bell Collection. The base is hand carved from solid cherry and hand rubbed to a pristine finish. Elegant, modern and graceful lines accentuate the natural beauty of the wood, and serve as the perfect minimalist companion for the Ship’s Bell Clock. A custom engraved solid brass plaque marks its authenticity. 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 on a Thos.

Chelsea Clocks

SINCE1897... The finest clocks in America A Chelsea Clock is an exquisite time machine; each one an individual work of art, made by an elite group of master clock makers with the same relentless precision and craft for over 100 years. Since the turn of the 19th century, Chelsea Clock has been deeply rooted in a tradition of keeping time at sea. Our nautical clocks have sailed the seas with the U.S. military and graced the ocean’s most impressive yachts. Chelsea celebrates a proud history of firsts. Like our military-style Navy deck clocks, first made in the 1940s to withstand the rigors of battle and life at sea. Our Patriot Deck Collection continues to reflect this innovative thinking and craftsmanship. 1969 – President Johnson watches an Apollo spaceflight from the White House, with his U.S. Navy Chelsea Pilot House Clock resting on his television.
