  • Tide clocks can be used wherever there are semidiurnal tides. On the Atlantic Coast of the United States and Canada the tide clocks seldom need adjustment. On the Pacific side of North America, including Hawaii, they can be calibrated to different coastal locations with special setting tables but they must be reset once a week on Saturdays to be accurate. This is because the Pacific tides are mixed semi-diurnal south of Alaska’s Yakulat region all the way to Central America. Tide clocks will not work in the Gulf of Mexico.

    Chelsea Craftsmanship

    Step 1: Forging
    Chelsea clocks and barometers are made of heavy solid brass forgings designed to last for generations. Chelsea uses more brass than any other clock manufacturer in the world. The 6" Ships Bell Clock for example, contains up to seven pounds of solid brass, most of which is the casing, forged (not cast) from a single chunk of metal to provide maximum protection from rust and corrosion. The high quality and volume of brass also accounts for the distinctive bell tone of the Ship's Bell Strike. Select products are also offered in Nickel, where our solid brass forgings are expertly plated for a modern metallic finish.
    Step 2: Forged Case is Shaped
    A computerized lathe is used to ensure the clock cases are modified to the correct size and shape. The shaping process is essentially the same whether a case is going to be used for a Ship's Bell or for any other clock or barometer model
    Step 3: Buffing
    The rough machined cases are then sent to the buffing room, where they undergo three separate polishing and buffing steps to bring out their mirror like finish. The hand administered buffing technique is a lengthy process requiring tremendous skill and just the right amount of pressure to bring out its full luster, as well as avoid markings or too dull a finish.
    Step 4: Case Is Hand Lacquered
    Next the case is sent to the lacquering room, where a clear finish is applied by hand to further protect the case against corrosion. With normal care and cleaning, the case's tarnish resistant and illustrious appearance will last for generations. Once polished and lacquered, each case is machined and drilled to accept a variety of different clock and barometer models.
    Step 5: Hand Assembly
    The movement's 364 parts, including gold plated brass gears, hardened steel pinions, and jeweled bearings are hand assembled. Mainsprings are hand wound, and the finished pieces are balanced and calibrated. In total the manufacturing and assembly of a Ships Bell requires hundreds of hand operations over a period of 6 weeks.
    Step 6: Testing
    Our master clock makers take extra care to ensure each instrument, both clocks and barometers, function perfectly. Each movement is inspected and accuracy-tested for a full seven days. Once it is put into the case, the whole unit is again tested for an additional seven days.
