Is that 1 of the clocks that’s in storage you’re considering putting on Craig’s List because you were bored with clocks & wanted to cycle across S.E. Asia instead ??Here is my humble addition and only Chelsea I own. This is a 12 Inch Special Grand Tiffany Dial with Brass Ball Feet with matching serial numbers on mechanism and bottom of base to 1909 I think. This was out of the Fisher Body Estate Auction in Detroit, Michigan a few years ago..

There is but a handful of 12inch Dials that are SHIPS BELL and SPECIAL GRAND....Extremely scarce to say the least...!man....the examples in this thread make my 6" clock seem like a mouse in a room full of elephants. I guess I only paid 50 bucks for it tho.....
over the course of years I plan to have a decent collection of ships clocks particularly the larger ones.
that 12".....just fantastic!
Trying to learn what the numbers mean on my 24 hour, bakelite Chelsea.
The ones etched on the back, one of them being DT-0407-1092e4 and the other being in not so great printing 220260. Would'nt mind learning all I can about the number on the face, 364E
Thanks for any help anyone can give.

Hi, I was able to acquire a large 1903 Chelsea ship bell clock. It has a serial number in the low 5000's. Is there much value in the clock. It is in good condition, could use a cleaning. Just trying to figure out the value.
Did anyone answer your question?I have this 6" Chelsea with the screw front bezel. I found it at an estate sale. They priced it rather low because they couldn't get it to strike the hours 1 - 12 like a clock should.
Based on the serial Number this clock was made between 1965 and 1969.
It does strike at about 3 minutes past the hour but I have been unable to budge the minute hand bushing. Anyone have a suggestion. I do not want to damage the hand

Yes this is long gone to someone whom will care fir it a lot better then I was able to for sure. Yes the clock thing is history to me as I actually am in "SE ASIA" as Type this message now. Come to find out that was one scarce puppy for sure..Is that 1 of the clocks that’s in storage you’re considering putting on Craig’s List because you were bored with clocks & wanted to cycle across S.E. Asia instead ??
If I understand correctly, you have a "house strike" Chelsea that is striking about 3 minutes after the hour and half hour? The adjustment is best made on the center shaft of the movement.Never heard back on that adjustment and haven't had time to experiment. If you have some helpful input I would appreciate it
