The Lines of Longitude – determinants of ones position in terms of navigation was a crucial puzzle to be solved in the early era of English naval dominance. Clockmakers, like Thomas Earnshaw, the often heralded "father of the modern chronometer" were celebrated for their genius in helping to navigate the world's oceans. Thomas Earnshaw and his famed chronometers were rewarded and recognized by the Board of Longitude in 1805 for their work in helping to open up the seas to safe and accurate passage around the world. The LONGITUDE timepiece from Earnshaw is a fitting tribute to the ingenuity , intelligence and grace in design of the works from Earnshaw. A large classically formed case – opens to exhibit a complex yet precise and clear vision of timekeeping mastery.
Thomas Earnshaw is revered as a legend and pioneer in the field of Horology. Born in Manchester, England in 1749, he was celebrated for his work in refining, and improving upon the Marine Chronometers of the era. It was those Marine Chronometers, crucial to the journeys taken by the boats in the Royal Navy as they circled the globe during a golden era in English history of science and exploration.
Lovely looking skeleton watch, could do with the hands a bit wider, and different colour, so they stand out more against the background. The metal strap is a bit dodgy, regarding one side of the claps coming undone, if you catch it, as I seem to do quite a bit.
