The term chronometer (From Greek: Î§Ï�Î¿Î½ÏŒÎ¼ÎµÏ„Ï�Î¿) is a specific type of timepiece tested and certified to meet certain precision standards. In our clock it is represented by 2 clock faces – one for minutes and hours and the second is for seconds. The term chronometer was coined by Jeremy Thacker of Beverley, England in 1714, referring to his invention of a clock ensconced in a vacuum chamber. The term chronometer is also used to describe a marine chronometer used for celestial navigation and determination of longitude. The marine chronometer was invented by John Harrison in 1730. This was the first of a series of chronometers that enabled accurate marine navigation. From then on, an accurate chronometer was essential to deep sea marine or air navigation out of sight of land. wiki
