Chelsea U.S. Navy
12/24 Hour Bulkhead Clock – Ca. 1945-1949
Dating from 1945-1949 Post WW II Period
Presented is a fine vintage U.S. Navy 12/24 hour bulkhead clock, movement Serial No. 75380E, produced by Chelsea Clock Company after WW II. This is an 11-jewel, 8-day movement, although we find that it runs for almost two weeks on a single wind. For best timekeeping, it is best to wind these clocks once a week. The movement Serial No.467968 dates to from 1944 to 1949.
The excellence of Chelsea clocks is well established, having been in production of the finest clocks since 1897. It is always a privilege to be able to offer these fine examples produced for the U.S. Navy.
This fine clock is in excellent – like new condition with a 12/24 hour face and sweep second hand. The case shows in new condition, and the engraved number of the movement on the back plate is the first movement in this clock. The clock is keeping excellent time and had been recently cleaned and serviced. It will make a worthy and memorable gift for anyone with a Navy connection or interest.
