Vintage Gub Veb Glashutte Uhrenbetriebe 2 Day Marine Chronometer In Box Ticks For Sale
You are offerding on the VINTAGE GUB VEB GLASHUTTE UHRENBETRIEBE SPRING DETENT TWO DAY MARINE CHRONOMETER IN WOOD BOX AND BRASS TUB pictured below.
PLEASE FIRST READ HIGHLIGHTED TERMS OF SALE / SHIPPING / PAYMENT INFO BELOW AS THERE ARE CHANGES!
This chronometer winds and ticks. I don't know when it was last cleaned - it's quite possible it will need a clean soon. I note a disparity in serial numbers - the movement and dial with 4611 and the tub with 4707. Perhaps a marriage? There is no longer (rubbed out?) a serial no. on the plate or plaque on the box.
The movement does not have the traditional chain between the barrel and fusee. Instead some kind of wire perhaps? It seems to work fine. The movement has a helical balance spring and bimetallic cut balance wheel with circular weights. There is some staining and spotting on the movement. Perhaps some of that would come off with a clean - maybe not. The Up/Down winding indicator works as it should. The dial and hands with a bit of dirt but overall nice. The screw on/off bezel with beveled glass. The wooden case generally in very good condition with some scuffs and scratches. I don't see any breaks or splits. I will cork the balance with paper before shipping and will package with care.
The brass bezel measures approx. 4 7/8 inches across. The box is about 7 1/4 x 7 1/4 x 7 1/4. The whole thing weighs about 8 lbs 9-10 oz. Boxed for shipping it will weigh a lot more.
