Chelsea "Commodore" - Original Catalogue Drawing ~ Antique Clocks Guy

 

Here is a beautiful example of a large Chelsea "Commodore" model circa 1918 that has just been thoroughly gone through. The red brass case was completely disassembled, polished and re-lacquered and the movement was professionally overhauled by the top Chelsea/watch guy in So CA. Take a close look at the details and photos...

Physical: The red brass case, which measures 14"w x 12.5"h x 7"d and is in sparkling clean condition.

The 8.5" silvered dial, signed "J.E. Caldwell & Co. (the Philadelphia jeweler who first sold the clock) has the original silvering and is in excellent condition. It is also marked "Ship's Bell", which means it uses a special pattern of bells to tell the time (see link).

Mechanical: The eight-day ship's bell-strike movement has just been completely overhauled and is in excellent running order. Bell-strike works perfectly.

Comments: Nice clock in wonderful condition... and priced right!

Here is a big, beautiful Chelsea brass clock called the "Commander" in later catalogues. It features a special dial with raised Arabic numerals and fancy hands. This clock, which has clearly led a very charmed life, has just come from the original purchaser family, so it has not been passed around and that is reflected in its exceptional condition.

Our contact at Chelsea sent us this confirmation of the original client and shipping date: "The serial number 20772 was sold to Tiffany & Co. on October 19, 1906 and it is listed as an 8 ½” clock on base (Commander) with special dial which seems to be consistent with the photos." This number is stamped on both the movement and the back of the case The wooden base and the adaptor casting for the base have matching serial numbers 1634.

Physical: The red brass clock, which measures 14"w x 12.5"h x 7"d, has a mahogany sub-base and back and is in excellent (and original) physical condition. The 8.5" silvered dial with original silvering is signed "Tiffany & Co. New York" and is also in excellent physical condition. The bezel hinge is tight and works properly.

Mechanical: The eight-day time-and-house-strike movement has recently been professionally serviced and is in excellent running condition and includes a Chelsea winding key.

Comments: Great clock in exceptional condition. We have only seen a couple of these over the years. It will look great on that credenza behind your desk (or on a shelf), or perhaps on the mantle. We'll let you work that one out with your significant other! Give us a call to start the process.

Chelsea Limited Edition “Winged Victory” ~ Antique Clocks Guy

 

Here is an opportunity for you to own a brand new, rare Chelsea Limited Edition clock. According to our inside source at Chelsea, "...no more than 100" of the Winged Victory model was sold. This clock was purchased directly from Chelsea by a retailer whose doors closed before it could be sold. The clock is held in its original elegant blue and gold-embossed Chelsea presentation box. Take a close look.

Physical: This is a new clock, literally "still in the box". Everything you see here is original... except perhaps any dust! The brass case measures 14"w x 9"h x 4.25"d. Mounted on a solid walnut base with exquisitely crafted, silvered and painted 6" diameter dial, it is in excellent original condition.

The very unique dial is signed, "Victory" and "United States of America" and "Chelsea". This is their production serial number 0029.

Mechanical: The eight-day, time-and-gong-strike movement is original, new, and in excellent running order. Even the original rubber pin that held the hand from turning during shipment remains in place. Though we don't have a photo, the movement will have a maker mark and additional serial number.

Comments: This is a very striking-looking clock (no pun) that will not only
capture your attention, but that of anyone who comes into the room. Wouldn't it look great on your desk or credenza? Give us a call to make that happen and claim a purchase "victory" of your own!
