Gimballed Chronometer

7240 Gimballed Chronometer

By the late 1700s clocks were theoretically accurate enough to use for navigation (mainly in calculation of longitude)­ but could not remain so if subjected to constant pitching and rolling at sea. To keep their mechanical movements steady they were housed in weighted brass cases mounted in gimbals inside lidded wooden cases, and this remained necessary for seafaring chronometers until well into the 20th century. The originals are now highly collectible.
Our beautifully finished replica looks the part but actually has a quartz movement that is more accurate than they could dream of 200 years ago!
Case measures 7" square, height 6".

Quarter Size Vernier Sextant

4563 Quarter-size Vernier Sextant

Full-size vernier sextants were, in skilled hands, instruments of great accuracy, practicality and beauty – a joy to own and use, but also essential to the safety of the ship. Our replica is dedicated to Royal Navy Captain John Campbell, who developed the instrument in 1757. Crucially his invention appeared at about the same time as the first accurate, portable chronometers – and the combination of the two transformed navigation from guesswork to science, saving countless lives at sea. This importance gave rise to the air of mystique which surrounds the instrument and its use, even in today’s age of electronic wizardry.
This quarter-size version is an irresistible "must-have" for the desks of instrument collectors and nautical enthusiasts. Sextant measures 4×4.5", box 5" square.
