LARGE 11 JEWEL

SHIP’S BELL

8 DAY CLOCK No. 66 – Ca 1948

Seth Thomas has been noted for its ship’s clocks for
well over 100 years, and in its early days, was the sole provider to the U.S. Navy

STAND INCLUDED ~ A $75.00 VALUE

 

Presented is a very rare, vintage, eight day, 11 Jewel movement,
striking bell clock whose design introduction dates to 1921, and this one with a movement signed and dated, 
9 – 1948. It
is only the second we’ve had in this larger size, making it very rare and suitable for presentation as
an important gift. The No. 115 movement closely resembles, and is the equal of Chelsea’s similar Ship’s Bell
design, but has the added special feature of the Seth Thomas patented self-correcting rack and snail ship’s bell striking
design. It is housed in a very heavy, forged bronze case with screw on bezel. It should not be mistaken for clocks
of lesser quality such as the more ubiquitous Merrimack, Mayflower, Helmsman or Corsair models, or those with a
German movement.

8 day bell movement

 

 

RECENT SERVICE: The clock has just been serviced by a master clock smith, and the
movement is keeping good time and rings ships’ bells in sequence loudly, with a deep throaty resonance and an authoritative tone
that is second to none.

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

 

SPECIFICATIONS: Forged bronze case with screw on,
moisture resistant bezel. The six inch face has a five and one half inch viewable area. The acid etched silver plated dial
has  Arabic numerals and Copperplate lettering filled in black enamel. The precision 8 day, No.115 movement with 11
jewels has a compensated balance wheel and Breguet hairspring.

DIMENSIONS:

Dial 6 1/2“ visible area 5 1/2“

CONDITION: This internal bell clock is in especially fine condition with a near blemish
free face, and overall very good condition. It is running strong and keeping good time compared to an accurate
quartz watch, and is striking the bells each half hour in proper sequence. The case shows some marks of age and use with
an occassional casting blemish, but these are minor in respect to the clocks overall good looks. We recommend it be wound
about every four days for best timekeeping.
