    Frodsham double impulse chronometer on theWatches.tv

    Well worth watching, the video starts with some history on Marine Chronometers and Frodsham.
    And from around 5:50 onwards some background about this fascinating watch.

    The video is in my list to watch! Hope they mention Derek Pratt and his involvement.

    The most horologically significant watch today!

    I love watching the movement. A bit more....

    Charles Frodsham and the Double Impulse Chronometer wristwatch.

    Yes, my thoughts too... if I had 60,000 to spend on a watch that's where my money would go!
