Lot#: 396

DESCRIPTION: Chelsea Clock Co., Boston, Mass., marine clock, 8 day, time and ship's strike, spring driven jeweled balance wheel movement in a brass case with screw-on bezel and 5.5 inch silvered dial with blued steel Breguet style hands.
CONDITION: The heavy brass case has a nice old patina. The bezel is considerably brighter than the case, so was polished more recently or did not start life with the rest of the case. Signed silvered dial is in good condition with just a hint of yellowing in spots. Steel hands have a small amount of oxidation. The escape wheel arbor has a broken pivot on the pinion end. Early signed movement is serial number 24157, which matches the number stamped on the back of the case.
ESTIMATE: $150 - $250

DIMENSIONS: 7.5in x 7.5in x 3.5in
