MY NAME IS PETER TOOT. I AM A HOROLOGIST BECAUSE THE BROADER CYCLES OF TIME AND OUR ATTEMPTS TO REPRESENT THEM IN SMALL MACHINES FASCINATE ME.

 

I SPECIALIZE IN MARINE CHRONOMETERS DUE TO THEIR PRECISION, HISTORY AND BEAUTY. 

I AM TRAINED AS A WATCHMAKER AND AS A HOROLOGICAL CONSERVATOR. AS A RESULT I UNDERSTAND  CHRONOMETERS BOTH AS TIMEKEEPERS AND AS HISTORICAL OBJECTS AND I KNOW HOW TO TREAT THEM CORRECTLY.

THESE ARE MY QUALIFICATIONS:
 

  • HOROLOGICAL CONSERVATION                      WEST DEAN COLLEGE, ENGLAND.

    • B.A.D.A. DAVIES PRIZE

    • WORSHIPFUL COMPANY OF CLOCKMAKERS PRIZE
       

  • WOSTEP-  3000-HOUR WATCHMAKING PROGRAM, USA

 

  • WOSTEP- PRECISION TIMING COURSE, SWITZERLAND

PLEASE SEE THE PAPERS BELOW THAT I HAVE WRITTEN ON MARINE CHRONOMETERS AND RELATED TOPICS:
