This distinctive, handcrafted timepiece signals the passing of time with gentle, rich-sounding chimes – eight bells at 4, 8 and 12 o’clock to mark the end of a mariner’s four-hour watch, with one bell the first half-hour after, plus one additional bell with each subsequent half-hour. Behind its classic, hand-silvered dial, 364 precision brass parts – many plated with gold – and an 11-jewel movement, all of which are made in Chelsea, Massachusetts, ensure accuracy in time and enduring quality for years to come. Since the first patented Ship’s Bell left our factory in 1900, it has been held as the standard by which all other Chelsea clocks are measured.
Our classic Ship’s Bell Barometer, designed as a companion piece to the Ship’s Bell Clock, features a double bellows holosteric movement that mechanically measures changes in atmospheric pressure to foretell changing weather. Readings of “Stormy,” “Rain,” “Change,” “Fair,” or “Very Dry” are handsomely displayed on the piece’s rich, hand-silvered dial. The 4" and 6" dial editions of this precision instrument also include a thermometer tube that provides accurate temperature readings.
The Ship’s Bell Barometer features a lacquered solid forged brass case and screw bezel. Barometer movements are calibrated to sea level and can be adjusted for altitudes up to 3,000 feet above sea level (factory adjustments for altitudes above 3,000 feet available on request).
Movement is MECHANICAL.
