In the United States, Chelsea Clock remains one of the most iconic antique clock brands. Founded in 1897, many of our signature handcrafted timepieces have achieved antique status.
Are you interested in acquiring a vintage Chelsea Clock, but not sure where to shop? Need a few suggestions for the right clock to add to your home, along with a few helpful suggestions to help your antique last longer? Then we invite you to check out our Chelsea Clock buying guide to learn everything you need to know when it comes to buying antique Chelsea Clocks.
Tip #1: Check out the official Chelsea Clock antique collection.
Before looking elsewhere, we invite you to check out our official Chelsea Clock antique collection. These are unique, luxury timepieces that have returned to our inventory over the years, after being around for several decades. We’ve even had clocks that are over a hundred years old available for purchase as part of our vintage and antique collection.
All these antique clocks sold through our official collection come with a two-year warranty and certificate proving its authenticity. Furthermore, we restore the proper function to these clocks while retaining as much of their original appearance as possible. If you’re looking for an antique Chelsea Clock, our collection is the best place to start.
Tip #2: When buying used, look for the serial number and certificate.
If you’re lucky, you may find a Chelsea Clock on sale through used marketplace channels. But how can you tell if it’s an authentic antique timepiece? In some cases, careful clock owners will have the certificate of origin or authenticity on hand to confirm that it is an official Chelsea Clock you’re purchasing.
When a certificate is not available, the next best thing to do is look at the serial number. The serial number varies from clock to clock, but it is usually stamped or etched into the top of the back casing. Once you’ve found the serial number, contact us to verify that the clock for sale was made by our company.
Tip #3: Sometimes, the best antique is one you restore.
Did you find an antique clock but don’t want to purchase it because of problems with its appearance or function? Then consider using our repair and restoration services. We are one of the oldest clock repair shops in the United States, and would be happy to provide a repair to your antique Chelsea Clock. We also repair many other antique brands and vintage timepieces.
