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.
