Marine Chronometer "Click" to Login or Register

My latest buy in "box clocks'. This dates from the 1880s and I would call it a generic chronometer from the 2nd half of the 19th century.

Jerry,

Your chronometer is fantastic!! Thanks for sharing the pictures. It looks like it was expertly refurbished to original condition, is this true? It is one nice piece as it would have graced the Captains cabin on a transocean voyage. Bravo!

Matthew: When I received the chronometer, it was running, but filthy. One of our chapter 52 members took it to pieces for cleaning and the necessary oiling. That was the extent of the work done. Aside fron the dirt, the parts were in beautiful condition, and showed no signs of damage or misuse. All of the numbers on the parts matched. Jonathon Betts, curator of horology at the Greenwich Observatory dates the chronometer to the 1860s.
