Ship's Bells

The orbichron clock offers the option of Ship's Bells, which are a pattern of up to eight dings or bells that chime at each half-hour in the continuous four-hour cycle of a traditional nautical chronometer.  The bells chime in pairs...for example, eight bells ring as four pairs.  The following table indicates how to interpret Ship's Bells:
