Mariners have used a unique bell code to tell time at sea for hundreds of years. The bell strike cadence guided the crew’s twenty-four hour a day routine while at sea.
Chelsea is pleased to offer this Limited Edition 4-1/2” Ship’s Bell Clock in honor of those who have served in the military since the first patented Ship’s Bell left the factory in 1900. This Limited Edition handcrafted timepiece signals the passing of the time with gentle, rich-sounding chimes – eight bells at 4, 8 and 12 o’clock to mark the end of the mariner’s four hour watch.
Its classic 364 precision brass parts and an 11-jewel movement, all of which are made in Chelsea, Massachusetts, ensure accuracy in time and enduring quality for years to come. Each Ship’s Bell Clock will also be engraved with the WWI Centennial remark with the WWI Doughboy design on the face of the timepiece.
In addition, each Limited Edition Ship’s Bell Clock is engraved with its personal number (1 of 100, 2 of 100, etc.) and packaged in the Chelsea blue gift box.
A portion of the proceeds goes towards funding the building of the National World War One Memorial at Pershing Park in Washington, D.C.
A Certificate of Authenticity as Official Merchandise of the United States World War One Centennial is included.
