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. To change the
routine two two-hour dogwatches usually run between 4 and 8 PM. One
bell - One ring (say 12:30). Two bells - Two rings (say 1 PM)...
etc. until... Eight bells - Eight rings (4PM). AM-Living bells are
made of heavy solid brass, handmade and sand-cast. The chunky hand
knotted lanyard offers years of use. We offer four sizes of bells,
petite to large, for beach house or boat. A true nautical heirloom
offering clear & solid sounds.
