Chelsea USCG Ship's Brass Case Clock Pre WW II Era

This Fine Old Relic Has Been Sold
Thank you!

CHELSEA U.S. COAST GUARD SHIP'S
PRE WW II CLOCK Ca 1933

USCG Pre WW II high quality ship's Clock on stand image

Presentation Quality

STAND INCLUDED A $75.00 VALUE

This WW II Chelsea USCG Ship's clock was made between the two World Wars and has a very special side opening case of high quality and gold coloration. It will be hard or impossible to find a duplicate.

DIMENSIONS: 6" Diameter of face 2 3/4" Deep   7 1/2" Full Diameter Weight 6 lbs 11 oz 

Presented is a Chelsea USCG clock of a special design and high quality that must have had an interesting life if only it were known. A picker in Virginia recently discovered it in a government sale, so it is new to the market. This type clock might be found mounted on a bulkhead, on a ship's bridge, quarter deck, or in a wardroom.  Except this one is exceptional with it's side opening case with a strong golden hew, both of which are very rare.  It has a 6 inch black over brass dial with a 5 1/2” viewing area. The lettering is characteristic of what was used between the Two World Wars. The movement is housed in a heavy forged brass case with the desirable hinged bezel. The moon hands are matt white. The separate seconds bit is directly under the 12 o'clock position.  A lever type fast/slow regulator is to its right. All the positions are marked with a dot that used to be active irradium. The 12 position is marked by an additional irradium dot under it for blackout recognition.

USCG Cutter Taney image

Pictured above is the USCG Cutter Taney that served from 1936 to 1986. This clock may have seen similar service.

The forged brass case has been recently polished and lacquered. The movement is a 11-jeweled, 8 day time-only movement, with a lever F/S regulator, that has been recently serviced by the former head of the Chelsea Repair Department, a man with over 30 years experience. It is keeping good time.

"Chelsea Clock Co. Boston. USA", is acid-etched directly across the center of the face on both sides of the hand's arbor. A larger "U.S. Coast Guard" is below the center hand's arbor and above the  winding arbor. The number 211482 is stamped on the back of the case which corresponds to a date of Ca 1933. The contemporary stand shown is included.

 

Face of the USCG ship's clock image
The face shows years of use, but is in very good condition

CONDITION: This example has seen about 83 years of service, much of it at sea, and has the appearance of being new. The face is in very good condition, but shows a little evidence of aging when viewed close-up. The dots over the numbers once were painted with irradium for night viewing, but this has been removed because it was radio active. Scratched on the back is "Kitchen". On board a ship, a kitchen is called a galley. The Coast Guard never had a cutter of that name. The movement has been recently serviced and is keeping good time, and the case has been polished and lacquered. A Chelsea key is included.
