Personalized Graduation Engraving Options

When you’re shopping for unique graduation gifts, keep in mind that Chelsea Clock offers brass and nickel personalized graduation engraving plates. This means that a clock-themed present commemorating the student and college can be tailor-made to reflect the graduate’s unique university experience.

Engraved plates can be affixed to most clock bases from double bases featured on our handsome 4 1/2″ Ship’s Bell Clock and Barometer in Brass to the single black base that comes with our distinguished nickel Carbon Fiber 12-Hour Clock.

With an assortment of timepieces that can be customized, we offer the opportunity to engrave a heartfelt personal graduation message directly onto the chronometer. Choose from such options as straight line engraving that lets you etch a note onto a clock’s case or plate. If one of our signature Ship’s Bell Clocks, such as the 4 1/2″ Ship’s Bell Nickel with Mahogany Base mantel clock, caught your fancy as a potential keepsake gift, we can engrave a company or university logo onto the dial of this elegant timepiece.
