You are offerding on the ANTIQUE CORNELIUS KNUDSEN KOBENHAVN (COPENHAGEN?) NO. 545 2 DAY MARINE CHRONOMETER IN BRASS TUB pictured below.

DESCRIPTION:

PLEASE FIRST READ HIGHLIGHTED TERMS OF SALE / SHIPPING / PAYMENT INFO BELOW AS THERE ARE CHANGES!

The layout of this movement reminds one of a Thomas Mercer - perhaps made by Mercer for Knudsen. There is a serial no. inside the tub of 12961 and it is also on the framework around the movement (see pics below).

This chronometer winds and it ticks. It could likely use a clean as I don't know when this was last done. There is some staining / tarnish to the plates of the movement and some scuffs / scratches to the tub. The escapement is a spring detent and this has a fusee and barrel with chain between. The cut balance has large circular weights. There is a helical hairspring. Also a diamond endstone atop the pivot on the balance cock. The dial looks silvered and has a little dirt/staining. Nothing mechanically wrong with this chronometer. There is a beveled glass in the bezel. The bezel screws on and off fine. The widest diameter of the whole piece is approx. 12.5 cm. - about 4.92 inches. The item weighs 4 lbs 4.1 oz. This will be corked with paper when shipped. If you can find a box to fit this should be a super chronometer!
