We are pleased to offer for your consideration a pristine Chelsea Ship's Bell clock that was made in 1918 (s/n 125209) and retailed by Charles C. Hutchinson in Boston.

As a young man Charles C. Hutchinson served as an apprentice to F.W. Lincoln, Jr., a nautical instrument maker, math instructor, and great-grandson of Paul Revere, and later, mayor of Boston. F.W. Lincoln and Company was located at 62 then 136 Commercial St in Boston.

In 1858 Hutchinson became a partner with Lincoln and the business moved to 126 Commercial St. By 1883 Hutchinson bought out the business and renamed it Chas. C. Hutchinson Nautical Instruments. The business imported and sold nautical and surveying instruments, charts, marine glasses, telescopes and flags. It was located at 154 State Street from 1893 until 1932, when it moved to 175 State Street opposite the Custom House.

How great is it to have such a history to go with your eminent purchase!

Physical: The red bronze case, which measures 10"w x 9.75"h x 5"d has been polished and lacquered and is in excellent physical condition. The serial number stamped on the back of the case matches the serial number that is stamped into the back of the movement. The 6" silvered dial is in excellent physical condition; hands are original, too, and the clock will be shipped with a correct Chelsea key.

Mechanical: The eight-day ship's bell movement has just been professionally serviced by a jeweler and is in excellent mechanical condition.

Comments: This is one of the most beautiful ship's clocks we've ever offered. We look forward to your call to make purchase arrangements.

Chelsea “Mariner” Ship's Bell
c.1928

Chelsea “Mariner” Ship's Bell, c.1928 ~ Antique Clocks Guy

 

Here is a beautiful Chelsea ship's bell clock in a bronze finish with full wood back and base with serial number that matches the date of the movement serial number. Its date of manufacture was about 1928. According to Demeter, this model was called "Yacht Wheel" prior to 1928, at which point, for marketing purposes, it was renamed "Mariner" to distinguish it from the model without a base.

Physical: The statuary bronze case on a mahogany base measures 12"w x 14"h x 5"d. The 4.5" diameter silvered dial is original to the clock and in excellent physical condition. This particular dial with raised numerals and fancy hands was called the "Special Grand" version. It is signed "Chelsea ~ Boston USA" and "Ship's Bell". Incredible dial...

Mechanical: The eight-day, ship's bell signed Chelsea movement has been recently cleaned and lubricated and is in excellent running condition. The serial number is 182650 and its date can be confirmed from the table on the Chelsea page in our Reference Library.

Comments: Wonderful, rich-colored clock, ready to go to a "good home". Yours?

8 Chelsea “Base and Ball Feet”, c.1913
w/Special Dial & Hands

Ship From So. CA


(orig catalogue – plain dial)

 

Chelsea Clock Company is synonymous with the highest quality in factory clockmaking. Here is an early example for your consideration. "Base and Ball Feet" was the original name for a style that has persisted through the years in the Chelsea catalogues. In 1917 this model was renamed the "Commodore" and subsequently the "Constitution", which is still manufactured today (but with a quartz movement). This house-strike model is a fine example of their early production. The 8" dial is signed "Jaccard Jewelery Co. • Kansas City", the retailer who first sold this clock.

Physical: The brass case, which is in excellent physical condition, measures 12" x 12" x 5". It has an 8" diameter dial that features the extra-cost "Special Grand" dial configuration with raised numerals as noted in the Chelsea catalogue.

Mechanical:
The eight-day house-strike movement has just been professionally overhauled by the top watch guy in Los Angeles and is in excellent mechanical condition.

Comments: Fabulous older Chelsea clock just overhauled and ready for years of great service for you. Call us to start the process.
