    Around five to ten years ago, Poljot marine chronometers were selling
    at US$950 or there abouts - much the same as you state for deck
    watches today. And they were pretty good chronometers!. The same
    chronometers today have gone up to around US$1250, but brand new
    marine chronometers under a thousand dollars never was a realistic
    price.I would be interested to hear what you paid for a chronometer
    (I assume it was a Poljot) five years ago.
