I have an American ship's clock - a Chelsea - which was still afloat in 1956 as it has a San Francisco chronometer repairer's sticker on the underside - which strikes ship's bells - apart from the dog watches, which are not curtailed. It seems every American ship, both warship and merchant ship - that was built for WW2 had one, and some of them had electric repeaters so the bells could be heard throughout the accomodation.
