Lily & Co. Jewelers is the place to discover exclusive Father’s Day gifts, so you can take time to celebrate dad on his special day, Sunday, June 17. The Chelsea Clock Company is a tradition in American timekeeping. From now to Father’s Day, give yourself the gift of savings with up to 50 percent off selected clocks and personalize it with engraving free of charge on any clock purchase.
“A Chelsea clock is the perfect gift to honor your dad every minute of every day,” says Dan Schuyler, who co-owns Lily & Co., 520 Tarpon Bay Rd., with Realtor Karen Bell. Chelsea clocks and barometers remain crafted from rugged, forged brass cases which are hand polished and lacquered to last generations.
The movement’s 365 parts, including gold-plated brass gears, hardened steel pinions and jeweled bearings, are hand assembled – methods used since the company’s founding more than a century ago. “The Ship’s Bell is regarded as Chelsea’s signature timepiece and renowned by mariners and collectors worldwide,” says Schuyler.
Despite a rocky start in 1880, groundwork for the finest American clock was firmly established via innovation from the country’s earliest clock craftsmen. By the early 1900s, Chelsea had established distribution in every major American city and became the clock for Rolls Royce. Electric clocks were produced in 1917 to satisfy the growing customer demand.
Lily & Co. Jewelers has been voted ‘Coolest Jewelry Store in the Nation’ and named ‘Best of the Islands’ for 11 consecutive years. It continues to be a place for exclusive pieces of handcrafted jewelry and the finest gifts for memorable moments. “We wish all dads a Happy Father’s Day,” says Schuyler.
