Comitti of London Navigator Clock
The Navigator clock is a luxury timepiece handcrafted in England. The gold-plated movement sits on a walnut base with a crystal glass mitred canopy.
The Navigator is a tribute to clockmaker John Harrison (1693 √¢‚Ç¨‚Äú 1776) who made the world√¢‚Ç¨‚Ñ¢s first marine chronometer. His unique timepieces made it possible for the first time for British naval officers to accurately calculate their longitude position. This technical breakthrough gave an extraordinary advantage to the navies of Great Britain in their quest for global exploration, trade and Empire.
