Here's a couple photographs taken at our Calgary Chapter Watch and Clock show in May. Doug Sinclair and I displayed our Hamilton Chronometers and Chronometer watches with the movements and dials showing, also on display on the top shelf is an Elgin-Hamilton elapsed time clock.

Larry, one day I hope to own one like these. What sort of markings do they have? Any broad arrows or USN stamps?

Thanks for the post!

Greg

I believe the Model 21 is 85 size and the model 22 is 35 size.

If you would like to see detailed pictures of these and other chronometers you might consider browsing the chronometer collection at www.awco.org/chronometers
