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.
