This unique clock, perched atop the First Congregational Church tower, is billed as the only town clock in the world to strike on ship’s time. The bell mechanism honors Wellfleet’s proud seafaring history, and is based on the four-hour “watch’’ duty on ships. The Middle Watch, for example, begins at midnight. Every half-hour, bells chime: one bell at 12:30 a.m., two bells at 1, until eight bells strike at 4. Then the cycle repeats. 200 Main St.
