Rare Antique F Dencker Ulysse Nardin 2 Day Spring Detent Marine Chronometer Tick For Sale
You are offerding on the RARE ANTIQUE F DENKER HAMBURG (MADE BY ULYSSE NARDIN LOCLE) 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!
The chronometer winds and it ticks. The up/down winding indicator dial works correctly. I will cork with paper for shipment. The dial has the no. 268 (maybe Denker's no.?) but the tub and movement have the serial no. of 159. The dial and movement are signed for Ulysse Nardin. I'd guess this dates to 1900-1905.
The movement has some spotting, tarnish, scratches, staining (corrosion) from handling. Not sure to what degree it will clean up. I don't know when this was last cleaned and lubed - may need a service if you are to run it regularly. There is a helical hairspring, cut bimetallic balance with circular weights. Good chain between fusee and barrel. It looks like this has a diamond endstone in the balance jewel setting.
The brass tub has lots of corrosion, scratches, dirt, hand engraving etc. The glass in the bezel has some deep scratches. The ratchet winding key has wear from handling and staining.
The wood case with brass inlay and corners has cracks, striations, inlay coming loose in places. There is a cracked glass (this could completely break or get worse in transit) in the top of the box and a fabric glued to inside of top of box. There is a plaque? missing from outside of front of box. There is a light bulb in setting inside the box at back. I don't have a key to lock the box. Look the pictures over for cosmetic condition.
The bezel over the dial is about 5 inches in diameter. The box is about 7 1/4 x 7 1/4 x 7 1/2 h in inches. The whole piece weighs 11 pounds 6 ounces. Shipping weight: approx. 14 lbs 8 oz. Shipping box size: 14x14x14.

On Apr-15-13 at 06:01:21 PDT, seller added the following information:There is a slight POSSIBILITY that I could ship to your country by Express Mail International instead of the more expensive UPS - DEPENDING on whether I can insure it fully using the US Express Mail method. Insurance options differ with each country so I recommend you ASK FOR A SHIP QUOTE before you offer.
I have NOT sent ANY second chance offers for items which have sold. ALWAYS make sure messages for second chance offers come through . There are crooks that make FRAUDULENT second chance offers. The email address is the giveaway - it is never from a real address.On Apr-18-13 at 12:44:58 PDT, seller added the following information:International buyers:
Depending on your country in may be possible to ship this chronometer by Global Express Guaranteed (USPS). I can insure to some countries but not others and I WILL NOT ship without insurance. Please ask for a quote to see if your country is one of those I can insure to and ship to using GXG through the USPS. It would be cheaper than UPS.
I will not give second chance offers on this or any of the chronometers I've sold so if you receive a second chance offer it is bogus (not real).
