SETH THOMAS 1921 Antique 8 Day Ships Bell Clock

divisor line


Thomas has long been noted for its ships clocks and in its early days was the sole provider to the U.S. Navy 


Presented is a very rare, vintage, eight
day, 7 Jewel movement, striking bell clock whose design dates to 1921. Its No. 115 movement closely resembles,
and is the equivalent of, Chelsea’s similar design. It is housed in a very heavy, forged bronze case with screw on bezel.

It is in especially fine condition with a near blemish free dial and case which shows some
minor marks. The clock has been recently serviced by a master clock smith, and the movement is keeping good time and
rings ships’ bells in sequence with authority, resonance and a distinctive tone.

It should not be confused with
the lesser quality Mayflower, Helmsman or Corsair models or those with a German movement.

This early version was the top of their line, and
will make a suitable gift or worthy of inclusion in a collection of fine marine clocks

case with screw on, moisture resistant bezel. The six inch face has a five and one half inch viewable area. The silver plated
dial is acid etched and filled in black with Arabic numerals and Copperplate lettering. The precision made 8 day,
No.115 movement with 7 jewels, has a compensated balance wheel and Breguet hairspring.

Weight   8 lbs 7 Oz

few casting irregularities
1/2“  deep forged case
                                      Near perfect dial

CONDITION: 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.
