Beautiful clock. I know you will enjoy it.
I stumbled into one like that last year. Does that one have a screw or snap lock bezel.
Mine is the screw type made in 1960's
It is so neat to hear one strike the watches late at night. Fantastic time piece. Such quality workmanship in the movements.

If you haven't already checked you can remove it from the case and the serial number on the back of the movement will allow you to date when it was made at this link: Chelsea Serial Numbers

Chelsea will also issue you a certificate of ownership for $35.00 telling you when the clock was shipped from Chelsea

Easier to wind. I have to screw the bezel off every time. Heavy bezel and glass too.
Really nice clock you've got there.

Nice clock. I bought a few clocks from Ron Bechler and had him service a few when I lived in the bay area. I bet you got it at a chapter 5 mart. Being in Montana now I miss those NAWCC marts. Great clock looks in great shape.

It doesn't matter how many clocks you collect that Chelsea will always stand out. Beautiful and classic timepiece.
