Re: Incoming Hamilton model 21 chronometer

Wonder if Schick the company that made this Sextant was the razer blade company a lot of Company made a lot of stuff for the war effort in WW2 like the Remington typewriter co made 1911 pistols and ford and other car manufactures made aircraft during WW2. That effort what made the USA win WW2.
