This distinctive, handcrafted timepiece signals the passing of time with gentle, rich-sounding chimes – eight bells at 4, 8 and 12 o'clock to mark the end of a mariner's four-hour watch, with one bell the first half-hour after, plus one additional bell with each subsequent half-hour. Behind its classic, hand-silvered dial, 290 precision brass parts and an 11-jewel movement, ensuring accuracy in time and enduring quality for years to come. Since the first patented Ship's Bell left our factory in 1900, it has been held as the standard by which all other Chelsea clocks are measured.
Our classic Ship’s Bell Barometer, designed as a companion piece to the Ship’s Bell Clock, features a double bellows holosteric movement that mechanically measures changes in atmospheric pressure to foretell changing weather. Readings of “Stormy,” “Rain,” “Change,” “Fair,” or “Very Dry” are handsomely displayed in inches and millibars on the piece’s rich, hand-silvered dial. The 4" and 6" dial editions of this precision instrument also include a thermometer tube that provides accurate temperature readings.
The Ship’s Bell Barometer features a lacquered solid forged brass case and screw bezel. Barometer movements are automatically calibrated for altitudes up to 2,000 feet, and can be factory-adjusted for altitudes up to 5,000 feet above sea level upon request when placing orders.Item: 27013

"I just opened my father's brand new Chelsea boardroom clock and WOW! It is absolutely exquisite. The engraving is beautiful and the clock itself is a work of art."
"I was thrilled to discover that Chelsea Clock Company is still in business making and servicing their clocks for over 120 years. I was able to have my 1906 Ship’s Bell clock’s movement cleaned and a new coat of lacquer applied to the brass case. The craftsmanship is exemplary, suitable for something you’d expect to see on display in a museum collection."
"I recently ordered 2 clocks with engravings as leaving presents for 2 colleagues. The office was excellent in working with us in formatting the text to fit the clocks, and accommodating our short timeline. The clocks looked beautiful and loved by the recipients."
