Vancouver Skeleton Automatic
The ES-8075 commemorates the career and travels of Captain George Vancouver. Vancouver was a British officer of the Royal Navy, best known for his 1791–95 expedition, which explored and charted North America's northwestern Pacific Coast regions, including the coasts of contemporary Alaska, British Columbia, Washington, and Oregon.
Most famously the island and city of Vancouver in British Columbia, Canada is named after him. Vancouver used a famous Longcase regulator clock on board his journeys which helped him chart the Pacific Northwest for the first time between 1791 and 1795. This same regulator would also serve Captain Matthew Flinders on his epochal journey to circumnavigate and chart the Australian continent in 1801 to 1803.
