Chelsea is America’s premier clock manufacturing company.
Chelsea’s production began in 1897 with the introduction of the `Ship’s Bell clock containing a specially designed clock works that replaced the pendulum. Patented in the United States and England, Chelsea, rapidly expanded its offering of Ship’s clocks to include a wide variety of clocks for home and office.

From Teddy Roosevelt to Bill Clinton, there has always been a Chelsea in the White House. Over the years, Chelsea has done major projects with the U.S. Navy, Williamsburg Reproductions, Tiffany Studios, the Smithsonian and numerous other well known firms.

Clockmakers from around the world – five of the six inhabited continents – hand craft clocks in a building designed as a clock factory for Chelsea in 1897. Bench skills and machining skills were first learned in far away places like England, Europe, Russia and the far East. This diversity of skills is today blended together to produce an outstanding collection of timepieces for your gift giving needs.
All Chelsea clocks and barometers are backed by the manufacturer’s guarantee supported by a complete factory service facility.
