Astonishing! Amazing collection Martin. I especially like all the ephemera like the catalogs and boxes. Thanks for the post!

Stupendous, this really is an amazing resource. Equally impressive is the fact that you have the knowledge to go with the collection. Your collection of boxes is also quite extraordinary. I noticed you have no less than 4 quartz chronometers - how on earth did you pick them up, I have been looking for one for years but the prices have have way beyond my reach!?

The story of the quartz chronos is quite interesting. I saw a guy that listed two of these on a Swedish auction site so I called him. It turned out that he had purchased 10 or so of the chronometers from Swedish army surplus. I bought four for a very reasonable price. I have sold one and another one is not working that well so there is only two good ones left.

I did a short article about them here.

Thanks, Martin - that quartz chronometer post was one the legendary posts on the old site - would you consider reposting it here, first as a post so more of our members become familiar with it, after which we could move it to its rightful place in the FAQ?

Dang, talk about sensory overload!!!

I&#039;ll have to come back and check in on this thread a few times, as I can&#039;t take it all in at once.
