Brass WWII Era Chelsea Clock
WWII Chelsea clock with original 6” silvered dial made for the U.S. Navy, by the Chelsea Clock Company. The serial number on the case and movement date it from 1940-1944. During the war years Chelsea produced numerous clocks for the Navy, but the majority of these were produced in cases made of phenolic resin, better known as bakelite. Due to the shortage and strict allocation of brass, very few are found on ships. This "time only" model has a brass case with screw bezel for use at sea.
