Flinders and his crew mapped the Australian coastline, studying plants and animals along the way.
The voyage of the HMS Investigator from 1801 – 1803, shed new light on the natural history of Australia.
Aboard the Investigator was Ferdinand Bauer (1760-1826) who was appointed natural history artist for the voyage.
Franz and Ferdinand Bauer achieved great acclaim and contributed immensely to the study, record and understanding of botany and nature.
Stunningly precise works that were almost photo realistic in their accuracy were their hallmark.
This range of mechanical timepieces created in tribute is no less stunning and intricate in their detail and workmanship.
A fluid round case with an exhibition caseback has but slimmest frame to mark out the minutes exposing the full glory of the complex and beautifully machined individual parts that create this stunning timepiece from Earnshaw.
Beautifully honest in its representation of the mechanics of time – this is truly the timepiece for the connoisseur of horology.
