    My waterproof, shock resistant, anti-magnetic chronometer

    It's a bit large for my wrist even with the gross trend to big wrist watches.

    It weighs about 11.6#.

    It has a make break circuit that does work and it's an odd pattern, in that it is not the same as the published examples I have seen but I do not recall what it is.

    Dr. Jon, nice config! Instead of on your wrist, maybe in a "fanny pack", with the break-circuit wired to a FitBit on your wrist? You can measure the escapement "trips" ...

    Re Dave,

    I was thinking of posing with it on my arm and submitting it to the What are you wearing thread in wrist watches.

    I have measured the intervals with a continuity meter, I just do not recall what the pattern was except that Tom Mcintyre had a description of two sequences and mine differed from both of them.

    Dr. Jon, make sure you set your arm on a support to photograph your wrist mounted chrono, else you'll pull a muscle! And your M21 reminds me that I have an unusually marked one (marked "Sample 75"), which also has a break circuit, which Bill Tapp took a quick look at and commented that it seemed to have something unusual going on under the dial. I'll have to make some time and take a closer look.

    Dr Jon, I believe these were called "Bean Pots". I have serial 2E12656. I think they were used for surveying.

    That is my belief also but they might also be useful for bodybuilding if worn as wrist watch, or even a fanny pack

    Well, don't visit the board for a while, and look what happens. A fun new forum shows up!

    Instead of posting my chronometers, here's a link to my John Bliss virtual museum with my Bliss chronometers: http://blisschron.org/
