A Word of Thanks to my Customers

2009 was a trying year for everyone and all the more important to say THANK YOU to all of my customers who saw value in what I do and what I offer in terms of products, customer service and support. It is always my goal to offer great values and the very best experience you’ll have anywhere. This business is personal to me and I love interacting with people about beautiful clocks. I really do meet a lot of very fine people through this business and that keeps me going year after year. As we all move into 2010 together, I wish you a happy, prosperous new year and may your lives be rich and full. Thank you for your patronage. I truly appreciate your business!

Clocks still available for the holidays

Time is getting short but we still have a number of clocks and bases in stock for holiday delivery. Please contact me via phone or email to discuss specific models and logistics of getting a clock to you in time.

Holiday Gift-Giving

As you know, we stock a large variety of Chelsea clocks for immediate shipment but we can also provide custom service for engraved clocks, engraved plates or special gift orders. We can still offer and guarantee holiday delivery for most custom items up until December 10th with free UPS shipment. As we get closer to the holidays, this becomes more difficult so call me today to discuss that special gift.

As we get closer to the holidays, we can usually still accommodate that last minute gift using second or next day delivery. Call me for details.

Secure Email Form Added

I have added a secure email form to the site which may be accessed from any of the twirling "e" email icons which appear on every page. This form protects your email address by encrypting it as soon as you click the "Submit" button. This also protects my address. After years of having a clickable contact address out in the open I was forced to discontinue this practice because such an exposed address is a magnet for the spam robots. I got over 1000 spams a day and even with good filters, I still had to look through the list of junk mail to see if a legitimate one got in there by accident. This took time away from productive work and from talking with customers. Feel free to use the new form or just to pick up the phone and call me.

Special Promotion Extended

Because of the tremendous response to the promotional offer of a free box of See's chocolates with the purchase of a clock (sale items excepted), this offer has been extended in cooperation with the See's Company and will remain in place through the end of this year.

New Clocks Added to SALE Page

New clocks have been added to the special sale page. This sale is strictly limited to physical inventory on hand. When these are sold, no back-orders will be taken at these prices.

TimeMaster now Base Compatible

The Model 40095 TimeMaster Mil-Spec time-only brass clock is now compatible with the 23370 traditional mahogany base. A factory change in the depth of the case made this possible so this beautiful clock can now be used on a wall or on a desk or mantle

Threaded Bezels Have Been Discontinued

Chelsea has discontinued the threaded bezels on the Ship's Bell, ShipStrike and TimeMaster clocks. The ShipStrike Quartz clock is still made with a threaded bezel.

New ShipStrike Quartz Movement

Chelsea has completed a masterful re-design of the 40033 ShipStrike Quartz model. This clock has been fitted with an ultra-accurate quartz movement which rings a solid brass bell by striking it with a hammer to produce the most natural ship's bell sound possible with an electronic movement. This movement will run approximately one year on a battery and strikes the navy ship's bells on the hour and half hour. The clock is available only in the 4.5" diameter dia configuration and can be wall or base mounted for enjoyment on a desk, mantle, wall or boat bulkhead. See the ShipStrike page for more details and photos.
