Jewel eight day movement and closely resembles, and is the equivalent of, Chelsea's similar design. It is housed
in a very heavy, forged bronze deep case with screw on bezel in a convenient desktop size of which much fewer were made compared
to the six inch ones. The stand is an optional accessory and is available separately.
It is not included.
This fine clock is in near new condition as shown by the picture of its movement with a near blemish

is keeping good time and rings ships' bells in sequence with authority, resonance and a distinctive tone.

The clock is running strong and keeping good time compared to an accurate quartz watch and is striking the bells each half
hour in proper sequence. There are some minor casting irregularities on the case which are mainly along the flange. The face
has one small light smudge over the “6” and much of the bluing on the hands is faded. Other
than these minor marks of age and use, it is in near new condition. The back of the case shows remnants of nickle plating. Since
it is almost 90 rears old, we recommend it be wound about every four days for best timekeeping.
