Chelsea 6" Shipstrike Key Wind Clock with Hinge Bezel
Shipstrike clocks use the finest German movements designed for mass production. They strike the traditional ship's bells: One bell for each half hour on a four hour watch at sea. After eight bells, at four, eight, and twelve o'clock, the sequence repeats itself beginning with one bell. A uniquely satisfying way to mark the passage of time. Forged brass, 6" Dial, 9.5" High. The bezels are hinged. Shown on optional traditional wood mantel base. A heavy, forged, solid brass bezel holds the dial glass, and is either threaded to screw onto the front of the case, or hinged to swing open allowing easy access to the dial to wind the clock and set the time. The hinge bezel is more convenient.
