Chelsea Commodore Ship's Bell Clock, 5.5" Dial, C.1925, Vg Cond., Nr For Sale

Chelsea Commodore Ship's Bell Clock, 5.5

Originally named the “Base and Ball” clock until 1917, when the model was re-named “Commodore.” The dial is 5.5 inches in diameter, and the bezel measures 7.25 inches. The serial number of 161xxx indicates that it was completed in 1925. The hinged-bezel case is finished in a bronze finish ( senior moment: I have forgotten what Chelsea calls this finish - perhaps “statuary bronze?) and is in excellent condition. This finish is attractive and trouble-free -- no polishing needed.

Just back from the Chelsea factory, where the chime mechanism was rebuilt, the clock keeps accurate time, and strikes the proper ship’s bells in a very soft tone. The one could be increased, if you desire, by replacing the little wooden insert in the clapper (which is already an obvious replacement) with a harder substance. Easy to do, but it is your choice.

The only real demerit is the condition of the face. Over the years, some black tarnish has bled down from some numerals and winding holes. See the close-up photo. ( Please disregard the accidental reflections - the face is a fairly uniform gray metal color.) This is not horrible, considering that the clock is almost 90 years old, and perhaps a bit of attention with a Q-tip and some sort of solvent will erase the stains. I tried mineral spirits, without much success.

Chelsea is the last of the old guard American clock makers. In business since the late 1800’s, the company is under new leadership, and I think everyone’s hopes are that it will continue to be the worldwide leader in quality craftsmanship for another 100 or so years.

Please don’t hesitate to ask for more info or detail photos, and check out our other offerings. There is usually something good there !

I am sorry, I cannot ship outside the USA. If you are a determined buyer, perhaps you have a friend or relative here that could accept shipment from me?
