The helmsman rings the ship’s bell for every half hour of the four-hour ship’s watch; a ship is a round-the-clock operation, and ship’s crews work four hours on and four hours off. This bell is formed of heavy solid brass, carefully handmade and sand-cast and then given a bronze finish. The chunky, hand-knotted lanyard offers years of use. Perfect for the boat or house (or houseboat) the bell is a true nautical heirloom offering clear and solid sound.
