The historic clock in Bellingham Square is right on time.
Thanks to the efforts of the world-renowned Chelsea Clock Company, the clock has been repaired and is now showing the correct time for all 1,440 minutes of each day.
“The clock is fixed – I’m very happy,” proudly reported master horologest Bhupat Patel of Chelsea Clock. “We’re going to come back again to put the new lenses on the glass. The city is going to remove all the rust and repaint the clock.”
Councillor-at-Large Leo Robinson was on hand for the relaunching of the clock.
“They did an outstanding job,” said Robinson. “Tom [Ambrosino] had reached out to me to get in touch with Chelsea Clock to fix the clock.”
Robinson is the brother-in-law of long-time Chelsea Clock official D. Bruce Mauch.
