    I will be the recipient of these two clocks and I know a little about the Chelsea but do not know the model name for the Atkins. I have always been a fan of the subtle beading on cases and this Atkins will reside along my Atkins model 260. If anyone knows the model name I would appreciate your help. It has a great label and just some minor case chips.
    The Chelsea is a little perplexing as I wonder about the marketing approach that would have a ships strike in this case style and who they might be appealing to......
    Thanks for any help,
    Bruce

    Those look like clocks that just sold @ this Saturday’s Schmitt & Horan’s auction.

    If you look up the catalog online, they identify the Chelsea. The Atkins, I do believe has a more standard time & strike movement. Not able to access the catalog myself right now.

    RM, that's exactly where they came from.I have dealt with them for years and they always have excellent info but I was looking for some data a little bit more informative.
    The Atkins is not a wagon spring nor a fusee, but as you stated, a standard t&s.
