I promised back in time to show a certain movement, especially to Stev

 I promised back in time to show a certain movement, especially to Stev

It was to show some pics of my Victor Kullberg marine chronometer movement.

I never pictured it until today, because when I should adjust the time,

it lose 1 s a day I promised back in time to show a certain movement, especially to Stev, it fell apart,

so I grabbed my old Sony T3, and took some snapshots !

From my old post about Kullberg:

"This is a movement that Victor Kullberg has had in his hands,
because he always made the final regulation!
It's from 1884 and he passed away 1890.
During the time the firm existed it made 8,666 movements,
all books are left, except one.
Remarkable the same goes for Mercer, all their books are left except one!
That's the only two marine chronometer makers, from which the books still are available.
Kullberg competed at Greenwich each year, between 1864-1914
when the yearly trials were ended.
During this time Kullberg movements came first or/and second fiftytwo times !!
Outstanding :-)
He was born on Gotland in the Baltic Sea, Sweden's biggest island. "

Did VC make Marine Chronmeters?

Yes VC made 36 Marine Chronometers between 1919 and

Love your pics Alex,

of one of the FEW VC marine chronometers ever made.

I know this field belive me!

And beware of this firm !!!!

http://www.antique-watch.com/index.html

Antique Pocket Watches on the Internet

They have a fake VC marine chronometer since more than a year on their site !!

I checked it with Maison VC and it's a fake,

I have twice written to the "firm" and pointed it out,

and what I know Vacheron Constantin also has.

So all you my dear friends, beware of those sellers who hides behind a very nice and

serious facade  

This is the fake !!!

It's so low that I for the first time writes this about a dealer, or should be a stealer ??

Most of all it's a disgusting act against VC. that they should have made a movement like this

Angry Doc !

Fascinating marine chronometer Doc

And not only you, one can really be angry when you see so openly fakes from a dealer!

BTW, Alex, have you got pics of the movement of the VC marine chronometer?

It would be nice to compare with Kullberg's one.

Thanks a lot.

Sorry Patrice,

to Kullenbergs all are 3rd division,

And just guess what Lange made through the 30's and WWII,

not compareable !

even VC

Doc

this is all I have....

It's a very nice movement, but
05/28/2008 - 15:36

not a chain and fusee..

I wouldn't call it a true marine chronometer,

even though it's a VC

It's like all the "modern" massproduced marine chronometers,

German and Russian, especially during WWII,

a classic lever escapement.

It's the chain and fusée that thrills me,

and whatever Lange had for reasons putting it in the modern wrist watch,

I'm impressed.

The size of that chain is incredible small!

That is even more impressing on me than all those tourbillons..

Cheers

Doc

Doc, thank you for the photos. That cylindrical hairspring looks so substantial and sturdy.....too unbreakable
