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.

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.
