Steinhart Marine-Chronograph Bronze Premium

, ,

In the 18th Century, the carpenter John Harrison developed on behalf of the British government a precision instrument for accurate determination of longitude at sea, the first marine chronometer. These high-precision chronometers, gimbal mounted in wooden boxes where mainly built for the Navy in Hamburg, Kiel and Glashütte. They where used on many marine vessels until the invention of the quartz movement and are highly collectable items today. As a tribute to the craft and to be able to enjoy looking at this classic design on the wrist, STEINHART has developed the Marine Chronograph Bronze Premium. Powered by a precisely working Swiss automatic movement with chronograph complication, an ETA Valjoux 7750 in the execution TOP, stored inside a bronze case ­(a corrosion-resistant metal alloy which is also used for ship’s propellers), ­ one can admire the stunning technology of this instrument throught the exhibition case back at any time. Under the domed, double-coated sapphire crystal of the front one is immediately captured by the timeless classic look of the old marine chronometers, uncompromisingly reduced to hour and minute indicators, as well as the chronograph function consisting of the central stop second’s hand, a minute counter at 12 and an hours counter at 6 o’clock. Stylishly secured to the wrist by a dark brown calf leather strap, which perfectly compliments the sophisticated look of the bronze case, the STEINHART Marine Chronograph Bronze Premium is an elegant and accurate companion that should be part of every watch collection.
