A ship's bell is usually made of brass, and has the ship's name engraved on it. The ship's cook (or his/her staff) traditionally has the job of shining the ship's bell. Strikes of a ship's bell are used to indicate the hour aboard a ship and thereby to regulate the sailors' duty watches

Unlike civil clock bells, the strikes of the bell do not accord to the number of the hour. Instead, there are eight bells, one for each half-hour of a four-hour watch. Bells would be struck every half-hour, and in a pattern of pairs for easier counting, with any odd bells at the end of the sequence.

Ship's bells are also used for safety in foggy conditions, their most important modern use.The article "Ship's_bell" is part of the Wikipedia encyclopedia. style="text-align: center;">Smaller & Larger & Louder Size Ships Bells & Other Nautical Gifts Are Available.
