    "If he could afford the best sextant, why did not he
    buy a better watch? I am sure in 1800, a watch keeping time to
    1 minute per day was not a luxury. "
     
    A sextant can take some beating and be re-adjusted by an experienced user in the field. Watches just aren't very good campers. Similarly early chronometers could run right for months while rolling with the waves at sea, but bouncing on the back of a mule could cause them to break down in a day.
