The Longitude Chronograph is a clean classic dress watch from Thomas Earnshaw.
The case is a vintage inspired and slightly bulbous in design and build complete with “pumpkin” style crown and piston like pushers that reference more antique influenced timepieces.
The Breguet style hands – are again inspired by the early watchmaking history of the Earnshaw name but also serve to function without fuss –the operation of timekeeping without clutter or imbalance.
With a two tone polished outlook, the case manufacture and finish is an exercise in consideration and precision which is in harmony with the other details of the watch.
The dial is carefully and deliberately etched and detailed with either roman or Arabic applied indexes apparent on the dial. With an inner tension ring tachymeter and a precise Japanese chronograph split timing movement powering the timekeeping inside - the Longitude is as much a performance timing instrument as it is a superbly manufactured classic accessory for the modern man.
