      Precision-Made Ship's Bell Clock

      This gorgeous time-teller is exceptional in many ways. It's most notable for the signature chimes that have been used for years by seafarers, as well as its classic 4L mechanical movement and individually handcrafted construction. Each one of our Ship's Bell clocks is painstakingly crafted over four weeks to create truly beautiful timepieces, using over 7 pounds of solid brass, 290 unique parts and the patented 11-jewel movement. The solid-forged brass cases and hand-lacquered finishes delight aesthetics-focused collectors, while the clock movement is highly regarded and very reliable on land and at sea.

      In addition, the Chelsea Ship's Bell clock features a notable chime coordinated with a mariner's bell code for keeping watch at sea. The chime allows you to determine what time it is even when you can't see your clock. The same sequence that's been used for hundreds of years to tell time on the water can also be used to track your busy schedule while adding an air of sophistication to a room.
