Greetings, Just looking for advice on obtaining a marine chronometer. I'm an ex-merchant marine that has always had a fascination with marine chronometers since I first had to use one on an old Lykes Brothers tramp vessel. Now, it's come to the point of my life to start collecting things that are near and dear to my profession and hold some value. I'd like to start a collection of marine chronometers (as well as sextants/octants) but I'm having a little problem of finding these for ready sale. What is the best approach to procuring these items? I'm trying to violate the terms of service of this site, or get specific links, but I'm trying to get ideas as how to snuff these out. I'm not real fond of eBay, that just doesn't seem like the right place to look. I've seen some on auction sites where inevitably the listings are years old and are of no use. What would you suggest? I'd like to start off with a Hamilton Model 21 chronometer, as this is the first one that I used onboard a commercial vessel. Maybe after that, move to an older English one (maker to be determined) and then eventually a quartz to round out the collection. Any thoughts/suggestions?
