Your clock is part of a clock/speedometer combination setup.  It is designed to attach directly to the top of a speedometer.  The attachment on top of it is intended to hold an electric light that obviously is now missing.  Chelsea is a high quality clock so it likely would have been mounted on a speedometer unit of similar quality - most likely a Warner or Stewart Warner.  Your unit shows signs of nickle plating, and the black face would date it probably around 1912/13 era.  I note the bezel of your clock resembles the shape of a Packard radiator shell in general appearance, so your clock may have been part of a combination unit used on a Packard of that era.  Does it run?

Thank you kindly for that helpful information.  I had thoughts that this could have been used for marina/boat use but i think now your correct saying it would be mounted to a speedo of a 1912/13 era car.   Im not familiar with the packard radiator shell but now have some homework to do!   Thank you again for sharing this helpful info.

Terry, i think u nailed it!   for sure mine is Packard.  and probroly from a 1912/13 car.  Here is a pic i found from a 1915

packard. So very similar but mine has the 12 hour covered when the 1915 is visable.  Thank you again!

Glad to be of assistance.  Let me know if you need any other info.  I have had these before in my collection of brass age parts.
