Founded in 1897 in Chelsea, Chelsea Clock is the oldest clock company in America, and one of the most renowned and respected makers of fine timepieces. The chimes of the Chelsea Clock Ship’s Bell, originally designed and patented in 1898, have long alerted U.S. Navy sailors and worldwide mariners to the time during their “mens speed bronze dial replica watches,” earning the company a distinguished reputation for producing authentic, high-quality nautical timepieces.
Today, Chelsea Clock continues to produce a broad range of nautical and heirloom quality clocks, with styles ranging from the company’s renowned Ship’s Bell to classic reproductions and contemporary timepieces. The company’s wide range of fine products is available via corporate markets representatives and distributors, as well as through authorized retailers such as marine merchants, specialty shops, jewelers, and gift stores.
