    Geoffry,

    This is a high estimate; about 5 years ago I bought my Polet
    chronometer for about 600 (+100 shipping), and I remember there
    were many to choose in this price range. Almost every week,
    1 or 2 new ones were listed. Today my seller is out of business,
    and another strange thing happens: what looks like a Russian seller,
    with a Russian name and Russian stuff, turns out to be a shop in
    India:-)
    
    So I can say that a Russian chronometer was a reasonable investment.
    I regrett that I did not buy a couple of those deck watches when they
    were $300:-) It is the same Polet brand but looks like a big pocket
    watch and has no winding indicator.
    
    I am not a watch specialist; perhaps this is what Bill Morris refers to
    as a "kitchen clock looking like a chronometer" which he saw on the bridge
    of a Russian ship when he traveled Auckland to Oakland:-)
    
    Alex.
