In the 18 Century, the carpenter John Harrison developed on behalf of the British government a precision instrument for accurate determination of longitude at sea, the first marine chronometer.
These high-precision chronometers, gimbal mounted in wooden boxes where mainly built for the Navy in Hamburg, Kiel and Glashütte. They where used on many marine vessels until the invention of the quartz movement and are highly collectable items today.
As a tribute to the craft and to be able to enjoy looking at this classic design on the wrist, STEINHART has developed the series ""Marine Chronometer"".
