Product Description

Offered for sale is a vintage Chelsea 8-day ships’ bell clock and matching barometer, made in USA, probably ca. 1970s.  Both the clock and barometer feature solid brass cases with screw bezels, and silvered metal dials.  The clock features an 8-day movement with jeweled platform escapement, and strikes the ships’ bells.  The cases are in good condition, showing some minor pitting of the finish (see photographs).  The clock runs and keeps excellent time, and the barometer works well.  The dials are in excellent condition.  Included with the pair are two wooden bases for setting them on a shelf or mantel, or the pair can be mounted on a wall or bulkhead using the flanges on the back of the cases.  Overall, a very presentable clock and barometer set that is ready to use in your home, office, or boat.  Each one measures 5-1/2″ diameter x 3-1/2″ deep.  This set weighs approximately 12 pounds (5.2kg), and will be expensive to ship outside the USA.  This set was very expensive when new, and the current model costs thousands of dollars.  You can own this very high quality, highly collectible American-made clock and barometer set for $699.99
