BRASS MILITARY CHELSEA SHIPS CLOCK U S COAST GUARD WW2 ERA VERY RARE:
$926

I hate to sell this clock as my oldest daughter has always wanted it (since childhood-and now she is in her 40s) but I must liquidate my estate. 8-day clock - in tip-top working order. I will fully insure this beauty at my expense as I want it totally protected. I've owned this clock since 1964 and it was vintage then. I've never taken it apart-haven't had to as it has always worked perfectly. This sale is part of my " Estate Sale" as I am selling off my lifetime possessions at this time. I'm sure whomever purchases this clock will be very pleased. Please U. S. Buyers only. S/H $20.00 with returns cheerfully extended within the PayPal Buyer Protection policy with Buyer assuming all S/H expenses. Thank You for your interest in my sale--Please check out my other sales too.

Interested parties have asked about the serial # on this clock-------it isn't easy to read and I've never had strong enough reason to tinker with this clock to see the # inside to compare with the # outside. I was in the USCG for 6 years and have had this clock since 1964. It has always ran well and kept me happy. The serial # seems to read 3763 6----the last number isn't totally clear, is tilted, and could possibly even be an S. I tried to make sense of this number within the Chelsea literature but couldn't find enough data to satisfy me in standing by a certain identification. Perhaps the USCG clocks were numbered differently than some of the others----I can affirm to you that there are not too many good ones around, Like I said, before, I've had this clock since 1964 and it was way vintage then......so placing its' origin to WW2 is not a stretch by any means. The glass is 8 inches in diameter and, when you measure the face diameter to include the brass rim, the diameter is 7 inches. The clock runs strong, has no corrosion, and is a gem.

Okay---To keep this sale fair, I am entering the following information: A prospective buyer asked me if I would remove the three screws from the reflector ring to determine the inside serial# (he said, by the numbers on the outside case-if it was the original case for the innards-that this clock could very well be even quite older than WW2. So, following his directions I removed the three screws to look inside........the inside serial# is 185934. I hope this data is helpful to you experts because it doesn't tell me anything as I do not possess the knowledge or reference materials to know exactly what all these numbers signify. If anyone is willing to enlighten me, I would be most grateful.

It appears, from research I've done--since discovering the inside serial#, -that this clock is perhaps older than WW2--say from the era between 1910-1935.--but, as I said before, I am unsure---but I know there are those out there that know a lot more about this clock than are coming forward to tell us. I wish someone would shed light on what they know to help buyers find a good deal here. Those in the know are going to go for it , in the end, so . I guess, things will get interesting soon.

An observer on informed me that according to a "Whitney" book resource, that this clock serial # dates to Feb 1930. Thank you very much!!
