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, 364 precision brass
parts and an 11-jewel movement, all of which are made in Chelsea,
Massachusetts, ensure accuracy in time and enduring quality for years to
come. Since the first patented Ship's Bell left our factory in 1900,

The Ship's Bell clock features a lacquered solid forged brass case,
hinged bezel shown here on a solid mahogany traditional base.
The Ship's Bell Clock is also available in 4 1/2 inch, 6 inch and 8 1/2 inch dial sizes.
