Mahogany cased Marine Chronometer Caliber 260 by Zenith.
A superb chronometre by Zenith. Mounted in a Mahogany box and suspended in brass gymbals.
"Zenith's cal. 26x range was produced from 1920 to 1968 and was developed from an 8-day car clock with bezel winding and setting. This series was the mainstay of Zenith's reputation for observatory accuracy for 40 years.
The Zenith Marine chronometer, Caliber 260, was retailed as a marine chronometer, gimbal-mounted in a wooden box. Like its predecessor, it is wound and set via the bezel. The gimbals, of course, kept the timepiece horizontal despite what position the ship might be taking.
Zenith Marine chronometers were produced in small numbers and were expensive at the time of production." -"Observatory Chronometers" by H. Neumuellers.
The movement is the Zenith 260 calibre. The 19 jewel movement beats 18000 BPH and has a power reserve of 54 hours.
