Chelsea, MA, September 25, 2018 --(PR.com
)-- Chelsea Clock, the country’s oldest and most distinguished maker of fine clocks, is inviting Chelsea clock owners to celebrate National Clock Month this October by sharing their photos in a special, nationwide Me & My Chelsea photo contest.
Owners of new and vintage Chelsea clocks are encouraged to post photographs of themselves with their favorite Chelsea at #chelseaclock for the chance to win a Chelsea Presidential Clock, a classically styled quartz mantel clock, valued at $495. Photos will be showcased on the company’s Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter pages throughout the 31-day contest. One winner will randomly be selected and announced at a drawing on November 1, 2018.
Contestants can count themselves among the long and growing list of notable owners who have acquired one or more of these iconic American clocks since the company’s founding in Chelsea, Massachusetts, in 1897 (See attached “Company Highlights”). Nearly every U.S. President since Franklin D. Roosevelt has owned or displayed a Chelsea in the White House or Oval Office. President Obama’s administration even selected Chelsea’s Dartmouth Clock – engraved with the Presidential Seal – as a gift to foreign dignitaries when traveling abroad. In addition, celebrities such as Elvis Presley, Elton John, James Taylor, and Billy Joel have chosen Chelseas for themselves or as gifts to friends and relatives. And Chelseas are also cherished by the winners of such prestigious yacht races as the Newport and St. Barths Bucket Regattas, Annapolis-to-Newport Race, Marblehead-to-Halifax Race, and others, where custom timepieces are awarded as best-in-class trophies.
And, for those who have not yet claimed a Chelsea of their very own, the company is pleased offer a special 10% savings on select Chelseas throughout National Clock Month, only at www.chelseaclock.com. Additional information about the contest and special savings can be found at www.chesleaclock.com.
