VINTAGE CHELSEA
"OCEAN PRIDE" - "COLUMBUS" SHIP'S BELL CLOCK AND BAROMETER DESK SET

Presentation Quality

A very rare and classic ship's bell clock and barometer set in excellent original condition and keeping perfect time. Ideal for a superior collection, or as a prestige gift, or for use on shipboard

Presented is a near perfect example of a Chelsea ship's bell clock and a companion holosteric barometer with special Fahrenheit thermometer that was first introduced in 1928 as the Columbus model and made until 1938. The Ocean Pride limited production series was made from 1959 until 1982. Both devices are housed in polished yellow brass forged cases that are mounted on a statuary bronze base making it an incomparable set that was designed by Chelsea for special occasions. These would include as a gift memorializing an important event such as a wedding, championship victory, company promotion or retirement or any occasion that calls for a special trophy or ultimate gift. There is room for engraving or a plaque on the front edge of the base. This set has been long out of production, and the only thing that comes close in today's Chelsea product line is the same style clock with a basic barometer that is mounted on a plain wall plaque. It sells for just under $3000.00.

Our vintage example's clock is keeping accurate time compared to a quartz comparison watch. It has an 8 day time Ship's Bell movement with an 11 jeweled escapement that accounts for its good timekeeping. We have not taken it out of the case so the serial number is not visible, but we estimate that it was made around 1975. The design of this clock's movement dates back to 1906, and its upgraded movement is descended from patents issued June 5, 1900, and Aug 29, 1911. The set weighs a heavy 12 pounds. The bells sound in proper ship's sequence and have a resounding ring due in part, to the special forged case and the base upon which it mounts. The clock has a 3 3/4 inch, 12 hour silvered brass face in original condition, midnight black Moon hands, and no seconds hand. There is a fast-slow adjustment at 9 o'clock. The bezel is hinged to open on the left. A Chelsea key included.

THE NAME CHELSEA is acid etched in black upper case letters above the six o'clock position with Ship's Bell under. The name of the original retailer, Abercrombie & Fitch, is etched under the 12 O'Clock position.
SPECIFICATIONS:

Diameter of dial 3 3/4" Diameter of bezel 4 3/4"
Base 12 1/2" L x 2 7/8" D x 7" H Depth of case 3 1/4" Weight 12 pounds

Like new dial and Abercrombie & Fitch name
Barometer dial showing a few blemishes
Backside of Ocean Pride Presentation Set with tiny small age spots

CONDITION: Considering it age, and years of use it is hard to tell this clock and barometer set from new except for the the barometer which remains on 29.8 millibars, and the tiny spots on the cases where the lacquer coating is worn through leaving little brown specs. The barometer also has two small blemishes on its face from minor oxidation. The lacquer is worn off in a number of places elsewhere, darkening the bronze. All this is part of the normal aging process, and from a few feet away they can hardly be seen. The upgraded movement keeps perfect time, and there is nothing quite like the resonant ringing of a ship's bell from this design.

Larger than life. Top of case showing spotting. From a few feet it is hardly seen.
