10 Inch Antique Chelsea Battleship Clock Pilot House Model

 
IMPORTANT ANTIQUE 10” CHELSEA
“U.S. SHIPPING BOARD” CLOCK
DATED 1918

RARE 10" CHELSEA MARITIME
PILOT HOUSE MODEL

Presented is a rare and important, antique, eight day clock with an 8 inch face, manufactured for the U.S. Shipping Board in 1918. The Chelsea Pilot House movement is marked with serial number 126564 which dating it to that period.

  CHELSEA CLOCK CO., BOSTON, U.S.A

This clock along with other was ordered by the U.S. Shipping Board , (USSB) for use throughout its organization. In 1914, the United States' maritime position had been eroding for decades with some Congressional concern, some remedies actually worsening the situation, with European shipping companies dominating overseas trade and just over 10% of the value of trade carried in U.S. owned ships.[1] The 1916 act was the end result of Congressional efforts to create a board to address the problem dating from 1914.[1] At this time the legislation was not a part of any war effort with specific intent as stated in the act:

"An Act to establish a United States Shipping Board for the purpose of encouraging, developing, and creating a naval auxiliary and naval reserve and a Merchant Marine to meet the requirements of the commerce of the United States with its territories and possessions and with foreign countries; to regulate carriers by water engaged in the foreign and interstate commerce of the United States for other purposes."[1]

A board of five commissioners was to be appointed by the president with confirmation by the United States Senate as the United States Shipping Board (USSB) to acquire and construct suitable vessels and to create corporations under its control to execute the programs.[1] In essence, the USSB was given "complete control over American ships and shipping".[1]

  U.S. SHIPPING BOARD

DESCRIPTION: The clock is housed in a heavy forged brass case with easy to use side opening bezel and measures 10 inches in diameter. Because of the hinge style, we believe that this is a replacement case from Chelsea, as it has a newer type hinge. It has a large 8 inch brass 12 hour dial which is in excellent condition, and the clock has been recently serviced by a master clock smith. The Arabic numerals and inscriptions are acid etched in black. Below the 12 O'clock position is the winding arbor. Next comes the hands arbor that features a Full Moon minute and Full Moon hour hand. The large seconds hand has its own dial and the hand has a Half Moon tail. A Fast/Slow Lever regulator is directly to the top left of the enlarged seconds dial. The precision, 8 Day 11 jewel Model F Pilot House movement, and lever escapement with large seconds dial and serial number date this clock's manufacture to 1918. It weighs a heavy 13 1/2 pounds. It is keeping excellent time when rated against a quartz comparison watch. A Chelsea key is included.

Full Diameter: 10"
