U.s. Navy Wwii Ship's Chronometer - Hamilton Model 22 In Original Gimbal Case For Sale

U.s. Navy Wwii Ship's Chronometer - Hamilton Model 22 In Original Gimbal Case

Up for action is a fine example of the famous World War II Hamilton Watch Companies Model 22 United States Navy Ship's Chronometer. This chronometer runs perfectly and all functions work as they should. There is a wealth of historical and technical information about this fine timepiece on the Internet, so I won't make a long story of it here. Suffice to say this chronometer still maintains the same accuracy it did on it's included 1968 Certificate of Accuracy from Southwest Instrument Co. of San Pedro, California. I have tested this chronometer against the U.S. National Bureau of Standards (WWV) and it still maintains it's constant 5/10's second per day gain. No attempt has been made to restore the finish of any of the brass parts or the box's finish, as I feel the original brass patina and aged wood add to it's authenticity and character. The decision to refinish or not I leave up to the new owner (it really doesn't need it). As the photos will show, the dial plate is in as perfect condition as can be for a clock of this vintage and it is simply beautiful. Besides the 1968 certificate of accuracy I am also including a CD ROM of the entire original U.S. Navy repair manual and parts catalog for the Model 22 (size 35). Per the Hamilton shipping instructions (on a sticker on the inside bottom of the wooden case, the clock portion will be removed from it's gimbal and shipped in a separate box along with the wooden case in a separate box, and both boxes then put inside a third box with extra packing. Lastly, and I think of interesting historical significance; for the past forty plus years, this chronometer was owned by one-half of a very famous 1960's TV "brother" comedy duo. If you have any questions please feel free to email me and I will do my best to answer them. Good luck and thank you for looking...
