Hamilton Ship’s Chronometer (Type 21) in Burr Walnut Display Case

£1,999.00

Description

Beautiful Hamilton Ship’s Marine Chronometer. This U,S Navy chronometer, dated 1941, has a perfect silvered brass dial.

This chronometer has professionally mounted in a Burr Walnut display case, with brass feet, and is in excellent condition.

Type 21 Spring detent movement is in excellent condition, recently overhauled and keeping great time (in horizontal position).

 

Please Note: Spring Detent Chronometers are designed to be run in the horizontal plane exclusively. This movement does run well in the vertical position as it is mounted, but doing so for prolonged periods risks excessive wear and damage to the movement. This should be considered a display piece only, to allow the beautiful movement to be admired instead of being contained in it’s original gimballed box (not included).
