    Re: Manufacture new Bygraves?

    The Bygrave would be served well if paired with a splash proof
    perpetual almanac like table 4. in the back of Pub. 249. The U.S.Navy
    might even be interested.

    enthusiast market, I bet you could sell a thousand of them if the price was 
    right (under $50??). I like your "flat Bygrave" solution very much but it 
    lacks that difficult-to-quantify tactile pleasure that comes from working 
    with a real device. And of course, a "real" Bygrave is something that one can 
    show on a shelf. It's a conversation piece, even if it's never used at sea.
