Chelsea 8½” Marine Clock for the USS Wando. Marine clocks with a ship’s name on the dial are almost impossible to find and therefore are the most desirable of all marine clocks. The USS Wando(AT-17) was a 123ft, 575 ton US Navy tug that was laid down on 6/14/1915, launched on 3/17/1916 and commissioned on 4/3/1917. The Wando was in service from 1917 to 1946. The history of the vessel is well documented and can easily be found on the internet. Serial number 93451 on the movement and case dates the clock to 1915. The clock has been totally restored and is in superb condition in every way.
