Corporate Milestones: Ship's Bell Clock, from $2,850

Our patented Ship's Bell Nautical Clock is a magnificent way to celebrate executive promotions, surpassing sales targets or closing big deals - especially if the recipient is a seafarer at heart. Since 1900, this mechanical clock has been crafted the same way, demonstrating the timelessness of your organization. The rich chimes of the mariner watch code complement the magnificent brass case and hand-silvered dial. You can get this clock in multiple sizes with a brass or nickel finish and an optional base.

Retirement: Constitution Clock, from $525

Someone who's put in a lifetime of work deserves a magnificent clock to send them into their next chapter. The Constitution Mantel Clock, named for the first ship the U.S. Navy ever commissioned, takes the foundational style of the Ship's Bell and adds a stepped ball pedestal base and modern quartz movement. There are no mariner chimes because, in retirement, a person doesn't need to constantly be reminded of time's passing. Choose from a hand-lacquered brass finish or modern nickel plating.
