Earlier this month we were visited by horological writerJames Henderson, who last Friday featured our factory tour on his watch blog, Tempus Fugit.
Henderson explored the new facility:
While many lament the recent move to new digs, the facility that now houses the company is a beautifully converted historic building that retains the look of it’s former self, while the interior has been painstakingly remodeled providing a modern work space for both manufacturing and administration.
And our historical significance:
If the Vulcan Cricket could be referred to as the “Watch of the Presidents,” then truly the Chelsea Clock is the “Clock of the Presidents.” Previous as well as the current office holder (President Obama) have selected Chelsea clocks as official gifts of state to present to foreign dignitaries.
While taking an in-depth look at our manufacturing process:
It is nice to know that there is a place where things are actually made, and not just thrown together and over-hyped with a rambunctious publicity grab. History, tradition and continuity, there is a reason why Chelsea Clock has been around as long as they have been, and there is a reason why they continue to attract new, talented and committed team members.
