Antique Thomas Mercer 2 Day Spring Detent Marine Chronometer In Wood Box Ticks For Sale
You are offerding on the ANTIQUE THOMAS MERCER LTD ST. ALBANS, ENGLAND 2 DAY SPRING DETENT MARINE CHRONOMETER IN WOOD BOX pictured below.
PLEASE FIRST READ HIGHLIGHTED TERMS OF SALE / SHIPPING / PAYMENT INFO BELOW AS THERE ARE CHANGES!
This nice chronometer winds and it ticks. I don't know when last cleaned. You may want to have this done when you receive. The wood box is about 7 7/16 inches x 7 1/8 inches x 6 6/8 inches tall. Generally in very good condition. A few scuffs and gouges here and there (see pics). There is a glass in the top. The chronometer rests in gimbals. The tub is brass. The bezel over the dial is approx. 5 inches in diameter. There is a beveled glass in the bezel.
The winding indicator on the silvered dial works as it should. The fusee movement has some staining and tarnish as seen. Good balance staff and chain between fusee and barrel. There is a diamond endstone on the balance. There is a helical hairspring. Also a cut bimetallic balance with large circular weights. I will cork the balance with paper when shipping.
The brass tub has some spotting and other age related marks. The blued steel hands have a bit of corrosion. The serial no. on the plaque (plate) on front of the box matches that inside the tub and on the edge of the movement.
Please have better than 98% positive response if offerding. I reserve the right to cancel offers or the sale if the requirements are not met.
