A marine chronometer is an instrument that is both precise – stays synchronised with an external standard time – and accurate – the frequency of its oscillator is stable over time. Moreover, its high efficiency must be achieved during navigation and across a varied range of temperatures and positions
A mechanical feat, this mechanism belongs to the exclusive family of astronomical movements. The equation of time, represents the difference between solar time – which varies throughout the year as the earth nears or distances itself from the sun – and our 24-hoursper- day time, based on the worldwide consensus that every day should have the same duration.In addition to the zodiac, the celestial coordinates are completed with a magnificent 3-D moon sphere providing the different phases, combined with a moon age display showing – within the lunation cycle of 29 days, 44 minutes and 2.8 seconds – the time elapsed since the last new moon.
