    Perhaps you are particularly interested in this chronometer because of its past history? Might you consider enlightening us as regards what you know about it? Might help someone twig to an answer for you.

    Doug, I know where the box is without a movement. The box has an original nameplate with name and number and gimbal.

    Paul,

    Good luck. Years ago I was invited to look at a warehouse in NYC. There were piles 15 ft. high 10 ft across at the bottom with 3 ft between piles for as far as I could see. All boxes, binnacles, sextants, clocks and chronometer movements. Knowing how this stuff got treated commercially, you are literally looking for a detent in haystack.

    Yes Dewey, it is probably hopeless but I just wanted to give a shot at putting a pair back together. I did a Google search and in 2005 there was an "Alvin" requesting info on a Negus Chronometer #1323 so it probably is still out there less its original box.
    BTW Dewy, I saw what you did to Bond #199 and it looked magnificent!

    I'd be interested in the box. I meant to chase it on ebay and got distracted. I don't have 1323, but do have one worthy of an original Negus box.

    The site I referred to above is "Found Collection". It appears to be an old chat board. Here is the message the person "Alva" placed;
    "I have a chronometer TS & JD Negus New York N 1323
    I need any information about this.
    please send me an email
    thank you"
    I can find no way to attempt to contact this Alva on this site. The chronometer must still be around.
