Product Description

A Genuine World War II vintage ship’s clock made for the U.S. Navy by the Chelsea Clock Co. The black composition dial is signed “MARK I DECK CLOCK, U.S. NAVY DECK CLOCK (N) 507 1939 CHELSEA” but has been covered in black instead of the original white print. This beautiful ship’s timepiece has bold Arabic numbers, brass spade hands, a minute chapter, and seconds dial below the “12.” with very slight scratching to the glass face consistent with its age.

It is the Navy’s classic back wind bulkhead brass surround deck clock housed in an antique mahogany casing. On the rear of the clock the workings are housed beneath a steel back and accessed via a sliding screw fix mechanism which when opened either allows access or complete coverage of the internal workings . They are: Reg, Wind, Set, and Stop (set seconds).

This latter feature is unique in that it actually allows the clock to be set to the exact second without stopping the movement - necessary in coordinating fleet movements, shore bombardment and amphibious assaults. A 5th aperture is a small button which covers the openings when not in use. The mechanism is Chelsea’s finest quality 11 jewel movement with solid brass components featuring a bi-metallic balance and lever escapement. The backplate is unmarked. The clock is a precise timekeeper in fine, original cosmetic condition and comes with a winding key (not original)
