Welcome to the Time Portal
Time (book) touches upon nearly every topic in some way. Some of the most relevant are below:
A chronometer watch is a watch tested and certified to meet certain precision standards. In Switzerland, only timepieces certified by the COSC may use the word 'Chronometer' on them. However, numerous prominent Swiss watch manufacturers do not submit their movements for COSC certification, although such movements would probably easily qualify as chronometers under the COSC certification rules.
The term chronometer is also used to describe a marine chronometer used for celestial navigation. The marine chronometer was invented by John Harrison in 1730. This was the first iteration of a series of chronometers which enabled accurate marine navigation. For the next 250 years, an accurate chronometer was essential to any kind of marine or air navigation until the implementation of global satellite navigation at the end of the 20th century. The marine chronometer is no longer used for navigation.
