    Greetings, dial reads 95 Bute Docks, Cardiff. Just as an FYI, box is a reproduction box, but I'm not sure who/when made it, seems to be English, it doesn't have the traits of Gary Sellick's work.

    Tom,

    I don't think they are related as immediate family. Henry George Blair was born April 1,1851, in Bristol to John & Eliza Blair. Henry is listed as an optician in 1881 in Bristol and is married to his wife Grace. At this time they have no children listed. In 1901 he is listed as living in St. John, Glamorgan, as a chronometer maker and employer. He is listed as married but no one else in the family is listed as living with him. 1911 has him living in Cardiff, Glamorgan, Wales again as a chronometer maker and optician. He is listed as married but living with him is an adopted daughter a Millicent Harrell Warren age 42 and a unnamed servant. He reportedly died ( there seems to be a date conflict with Mercer who has him retiring in 1926) 1922 and is buried at Arnos Vale, Bristol Unitary Authority, Bristol, England. This information was researched by my good friend Tom Brown who has helped me out several times in this area of researching historical records which I don't have direct access.

    Here is a one day chronometer by John Heron of Greenock, Scotland. Jonathan Betts has suggested a date of 1828?Click image for larger version.

    Jerry,

    Very nice and early chronometer. I have no difficulty in believing Mr. Betts assessment of its age. Those balance weights are a good indicator of an earlier piece. Keep em coming!

    Burt: Your article on the history of a Negus chronometer was terrific! I am looking forward to your next article.

    Here's a pic of 2E11269:

    The Encyclopedia image tool can also be used in forum posts. Here are three pictures of my Fletcher Chronometer that appears on the cover of Konrad Knirim's book British Military Timepieces. Since these are off topic here, I will move them to the sticky thread at the top. they and a lot of others are in the Encyclopedia Images area, but the descriptions have become garbled during one of our software migrations.

    The [IMAGE] tag is much more complicated than the [IMG] or attachment tools. .
    You can find instructions on using it here: http://mb.nawcc.org/showwiki.php?title=[autolink]Using_Images_in_Articles[/autolink]

    Here's an early Bond. I believe it dates from 1851-1852 or thereabout. All the hardware is stamped 1851. I have not had a chance to research it further, but will. There is a Bond at our museum as well.
    This is a great idea! I love the unusual ones, and that one Tom posted with the winding indicator disc is Great! George

    A very artistic and apropos addition to the chronometer gallery. I wish I had your imagination.
