Nautical Solid Brass Ship's Bell Bronze Finish 5 Inch For SaleAuthentic Models - MyEstuff.com Brass Ship's Bell Bronze Finish 5 inch
The helmsman rings the ships bell for every half hour of the four-hour ships watch. A ship is a round-the-clock operation, and ships crews work four hours on and four hours off.
To change the routine two two-hour dogwatches usually run between 4 and 8 PM. One bell - One ring (say 12:30)… Two bells - Two rings (say 1 PM)... etc. until... Eight bells - Eight rings (4PM).
We offer four sizes of bells, petite to large, for beach house or boat. A true nautical heirloom offering clear & solid sounds.
This 5 inch diameter bell is made of heavy solid brass, handmade and sand-cast with a bronze finish. The chunky hand braided & knotted lanyard offers years of use.
Dimensions: Diameter 4.7 x 5 in. (Ø 12 x 12.75 cm)
