Considered one of the finest nautically-inspired clocks ever made in this country, the Mariner is a true masterpiece of American clock making. An exact reproduction of an original yacht wheel, the Mariner was first patented and produced by Chelsea Clock in 1911. Featuring our renowned chiming Ship�s Bell mechanism, this exquisite timepiece boasts 11 jewel movements and 364 brass and gold-plated precision parts. Its forged solid brass bezel opens with the original �shield� hinge-and-latch design. The clock�s dial is painstakingly crafted of deeply etched brass that is hand silvered, enameled and lacquered.
The matching barometer features a double bellows holosteric movement that mechanically measures changes in atmospheric pressure to foretell changing weather. Readings of �Stormy,� �Rain,� �Change,� �Fair,� or �Very Dry� are handsomely displayed on the piece�s rich, hand-silvered dial. Also included is a thermometer tube that provides accurate temperature readings. Barometer movements are calibrated to sea level and can be adjusted for altitudes up to 5,000 feet above sea level upon request.
The wood base and back are crafted of solid mahogany, while the wheel�s ring and base are finished using our own lustrous hand-rubbed copper bronze process and lacquered to prevent tarnish. Packaged in our luxury blue presentation box. Five year warranty.
