U. S. Navy Ship's Chronometer, Model 22, Circa 1942, Hamilton Watch Co, Lancaster PA
This Model 22 - 21 Jewels Chronometer watch actually served in a Navy ship during WW II which is substantiated by the stamping on the bottom of the brass cap on the tub's underside. It reads: MTD Watch, Bureau of Ships, U.S. Navy NO. 6964 - 1942.(NO stands for the Naval Observatory). The Hamilton Model 22 is a legendary watch which served as a ship's primary timekeeper.
The clock is housed in its traditional three section varnished wood case with full gimbal mounts. It has been freshly serviced and is in excellent working order.
