    Re: which would you choose?

    Perhaps John's answer is straight because it
    oversimplifies. The sextant wo'nt be much help without a
    chronometer. If you are choosing to do without electronics,
    a mechanical chronometer good enough for navigation will
    cost the price of several GPS receivers.
    If you choose a redundant set of cheap electronic watches,
    you are still relying on electronics.
