Nautical Decor
This wonderful Authentic Models Ships Bell is sand cast, hand turned, buffed and polished with solid duotone bronze. The chunky hand-knotted lanyard offers years of use to add to the authentic look of the bell. Available in two sizes, this is a true nautical heirloom offering clear and solid sounds. Perfect as a piece of decor in a beach house or boat.

Shift Time
The helmsman would turn a 30-minute hourglass and ring the ship’s bell for every half hour of the 4-hour ship’s watch. A ship is a round-the-clock operation, and ship’s crews worked 4-hour shifts. The helmsman would ring one bell after one 30 minute spell, then two after two 30 minutes, and so on. The eight bell ring after four hours would signal the end of the shift and the time for the crew to change over.

The ship's bell would also be rung during important events - if the destination was in sight or the ship was under attack. 

Imagine yourself ringing this aboard a ship; change-over watch! Land ahoy! Pirates in sight!
