Notes

This deck Chronometer watch was submitted successively (OR SUCCESSFULLY?) at the Geneva observatory where it obtained a bulletin de marche for first class category from August to October 1920, it was then immediately submitted to the National Physical laboratory in Teddington where it obtained its Kew A certificate. Amazingly, all the documentation pertaining to these trials have been kept with the watch and even the original certificate that mentions the double transportation cases. A truly amazing time capsule.
