This Fine Clock Has Been Sold. Thank you!

RARE VINTAGE CHELSEA MARINER SHIP'S BELL CLOCK 

A large size ship's bell clock which strikes the hour and half hour in a very heavy solid brass case. Just polished for your enjoyment.
Presented is an outstanding example of the finest striking bell clock made. The design was originally introduced by Chelsea in 1906 using "statuary" bronze ship's wheels and bases. In 1928, this version was given its own name, as the "MARINER". A yacht wheel clock without the base was called the "Pilot". 
 
The MARINER was designed to offer superior quality in a very large package, standing almost 14" high and weighing almost 15 pounds . It personifies Chelsea's reputation for engineering and manufacturing excellence. It has a forged case and base, and run's perfectly, and strikes the bell's in proper sequence. There is a 4 1/2" silver dial in almost perfect condition with acid etched Arabic numerals, and black moon hands. The clock has just been polished, but not lacquered, and shows as "near new". The Chelsea name appears in black upper case letters below the hands arbor with Ships Bell under. A fast-slow lever adjustment is to the right of 9 o'clock.
 
MARINER production was discontinued in 1984, but it has recently been reintroduced by Chelsea as a reproduction with prices up to $3500.00 for a recreation. This clock is not a reproduction. It is an authentic vintage example with serial number 642233 on it case indicating production almost 50 years ago which is borne out by a small note inside the base with a date of 1959.
 
SPECIFICATIONS:

Serial Number 642233              Size: 13 3/4" H x 10" W x 4 1/4" deep at base

Diameter of dial 4 1/2"                Diameter of bezel 5 7/8"                 WEIGHT 14 1/2 pounds

 
                 Serial number 642233   
              Top of case looking down

The metal base of the original Chelsea Mariner is forged from thick statuary bronze. The forged brass bezel opens with a hinge and latch design. Polished and bronzed finishes are majestic in their presentation. The clock's face is deeply etched brass, silvered, enameled and lacquered. A lacquered Mahogany wood base with back add a further elegant touch. Inside, the famous Chelsea Ship's Bell precision wind-up mechanical timekeeping movement chimes the ship's bells on the hour and half hour. This is no ordinary timekeeping movement. Designed over one hundred years ago, the Chelsea movement has achieved a reputation for accuracy and reliability of a fine Swiss watch.

 

 


CONDITION: Considering it age, and years of use it is hard to mark this wonderful timepiece down. Yes, there are a few tiny nicks in the wood base, but it's finish is generally in perfect condition. There also is a slight roughness to the bronze of the wheel's rim in a few places and a tiny scratch on the base. There also are a few small scratches in the case, and the dial has a small scratch at the speed adjustment, but nothing rises to the level of being objectionable. And the heart of the clock, works in perfect unison with a quartz watch used for comparison. There is nothing like the resonant ringing of a ship's bell from this design.
