  I have a couple of marine chronometers that have electrical contacts closing once a second. This signal is relayed by wires to terminals on the outside of the box.
  One came from a Tashkent astronomical observatory and is Sidereal time rated, the other is a nautical instrument which would probably have been connected to slave clocks.
