The Royal Observatory, Greenwich (formerly the Royal Greenwich Observatory or RGO), in London played a major role in the history of astronomy and navigation, and is best known as the location of the prime meridian. It is situated on a hill in Greenwich Park, overlooking the River Thames.
The observatory was commissioned in 1675 by King Charles II, and remains at Greenwich as a testament of the pioneering work in navigation undertaken by Earnshaw and his peers in the fields of timekeeping, and cartography.

Each THOMAS EARNSHAW timepiece is designed and manufactured to exceed the highest of standards. In order to ensure optimal performance and longevity from your timepiece, please review the simple guidelines for care and precautions of your new THOMAS EARNSHAW timepiece.
Your timepiece should be cleaned with a soft cloth and water only. Do not submerge your timepiece. Your timepiece should be rinsed clean and dried with a soft cloth after any saltwater use. In order to maintain the “new look” of metal bracelets, we recommend periodic cleanings of the bracelet. Dip a soft brush in warm soapy water and gently rub bracelet clean. We advise having your timepiece serviced every 18-24 months to ensure long use and trouble free operation.
While your THOMAS EARNSHAW timepiece has been designed and built to exacting specification, it is important to avoid the following conditions: extreme heat or cold, as well as prolonged periods of exposure to direct sunlight, exposure to wet conditions that exceed your timepiece’s water rating (see case back and chart). Never operate any of the function buttons or crown when timepiece is in contact with water.
Avoid exposure to strong magnetic fields or sources of static electricity as these may interrupt the mechanisms inside the watch. It is also important to avoid extreme shock or impact.
