I'm looking for one of those stop-watches, you know that type of stop-watch that the judges used for timing athletics.
Fits in the palm of your hand, one revolution is 60 seconds and each second marker has ten divisions within. It has a smaller dial which indicated up to 30 minutes. You wound it up via the big top-knob (carefull the sensorship http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif).
I would like to sit next to my sonar timing the ship revs... like I saw many years ago on a doccy.
Any one seen any of these ?? http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/typing.gif

Story is that a family member buyed it in 1876 at the world's fair in Philadelphia.
The dial reads :
Sadly it doesnt work anymore and the second hand is missing. Im thinking of letting someone repair it. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/winky.gif
But its the same style these old stopwatches have. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/winky.gif
