    Re: The Price of Mechanical Marine Chronometers and Deckwatches

    I'm not particularly familiar with marine chronometers of any brand, however re wrist watches suitable for celestial navigation, the following comes to mind.

    I have a Casio G-Shock "Atomic Watch", paid less than $60 U.S. for it on Amazon. Due to a failure of the plastic band, the watch was replaced by Casio, all I wanted was a new band, which I was willing to pay for, they sent me a new watch, I guess it was cheaper for them to send a new watch than to mess about replaceing a watch band, their choice. The economics of the thing might be strange.

    In-so-far as I can tell, checking with U.S. Naval Observatory/NIST Time, the watch is dead on, as near as two people can determine, one looking at the watch, the other "marking" time on a computer.
