This 8.5” Marine Mechanical Clock was originally sold to the US Navy Department on February 4, 1974. In the 1940’s and beyond, Chelsea Clock was the primary supplier of clocks for ships in the U.S. Navy. The case is made of a very durable phenolic resin which was jointly developed by the Navy and Chelsea Clock so the clock would not break or shatter if it fell on the deck of the ship. This white dial clock features 24-hour time with black numerals. The dial is marked with “Chelsea Clock Co. Boston U.S. Government” The 12E movement (time-only mechanism) has been completely overhauled. Serial #779963.Item: VR313

"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."
