Chelsea Clock Is Moving

Massachusetts-based Chelsea Clock, the country’s oldest maker of fine clocks, barometers, and tide instruments, will relocate its corporate headquarters, manufacturing operations, and repair facility from its original building at 284 Everett Avenue to 105 Second Street in the city of Chelsea. The company’s new home, just blocks from its current location, is owned by The Simboli Properties, and will undergo renovations to accommodate the needs of Chelsea Clock. Their ZIP Code will remain the same.

Chelsea Clock was founded in 1897 in Chelsea, Massachusetts, and continues to produce a broad range of nautical and heirloom-quality clocks, with styles ranging from the company’s renowned Ship’s Bell to classic reproductions and contemporary timepieces.
