Tidepieces by Alan Winick - Chatham Light Cape Cod Massachusetts - Tide Clock
- Handcrafted by local artisan, Alan Winick, this tide clock has the image of Chatham Light and Lighthouse Beach in Chatham, Massachusetts, with a harbor tide that rises and falls as the actual tide in your location goes from high to low.
- Chatham Lighthouse, known as Twin Lights prior to 1923, is a lighthouse in Chatham, Massachusetts, near the "elbow" of Cape Cod.
- The original station, close to the shore, was built in 1808 with two wooden towers that were replaced in 1841 in spite of questions as to why a single tower would not be adequate.
- In 1877, two new towers, made of cast iron rings, replaced those.
- One of the towers was moved to the Eastham area and became Nauset Light in 1923
- Despite the dangerous currents, major drop-offs from sand to sea, and summertime shark sightings, Chatham's Lighthouse Beach is not a swimming beach. In fact, swimming is highly restricted here and sometimes not allowed at all, for just those reasons.
- However, this enormous and ever-changing beach is perfect for hanging out in a beach chair, watching for seals, and long romantic walks.
- Tide clock has a blue wood frame with dual faced clock.
- Bottom of clock provides the traditional tide clock showing current tide. Dial provides hours to high tide and to low tide.
- Top of clock is what makes this time piece truly unique. A mechanically animated display of the waterline of the Atlantic Ocean rises and falls along Lighthouse Beach as the tide goes from high to low.
