Brass Chelsea Clock Mounted on USS Constitution Wood


We proudly present this USS Constitution Museum exclusive masterpiece:

A fully mechanical brass Chelsea Clock mounted on a genuine plank of wood removed from USS Constitution.

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 – many plated with gold – 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, it has been held as the standard by which all other Chelsea clocks are measured.

Dial diameter: 6". Brass finish. Movement is mechanical, no batteries necessary.

The wood mount, measuring approximately 1' x 7" x 2", is a plank of douglas fir removed from USS Constitution's hull.

This piece comes with a certificate of authenticity from the Museum regarding the wood.

The clock comes with a Five-Year Warranty from the Chelsea Clock.
