Eight Bells is the traditional way of saying that a sailor's watch is over.
The sounding of ship's bell is well rooted in the history and tradition of the maritime industry. The bell marked time onboard and divided the day into shifts or “watches” for the crew. At the end of the last shift, the end of the last watch, eight bells rang out – Eight Bells and All is Well. A sailor's time for rest.
