In Reply to: Re: BELLS posted by Dave Thewlis on August 17, 2017 at 14:17:28: turns out it does install correctly but not as an app, rather as a sort of system service. And the only place it appears is in the System Preferences pane at the very bottom (that's where the controls for it are). But it is running and it marks the time correctly.

However there's no way I could find of turning it off. So getting rid of it was more of a challenge - I had to use an option in its control panel to remove it from the System Preferences pane, and then rebooted the system. At least it did remove although it didn't call it that - I was afraid something more complicated was in my future.

So yes, there's a Mac Ships Clock that works under MacOS Sierra 10.12.6 but controls are minimal and inobvious, as is removing it.

Apologies for stuffing all that in a TarBoard post but I wanted to be clear about what to do if you decide to try it.
