    Re: The Price of Mechanical Marine Chronometers and Deckwatches

    It depends a bit on your reference.

    One can still buy a new certified (DIN 8319) mechanical marine chronometer.
    But if you were to get one made by Wempe Chronometerwerke it would set you back EUR 24,750 (~ $31,950) excl postage (and Customs duties - I have no idea what US customs would charge you for that).

    A new certified (DIN 8319) quartz marine chronometer e.g. one made by Mühle Glashütte (http://www.muehle-glashuette.de/en/marine-time-systems/professional-marine-chronometer.html), will set you back about $2,750.

    When such chronometers are your reference, you're not doing too bad with a $2200 mechanical chronometer, are you?

    Regards,

    Jaap
