The Navigator is a tribute to clockmaker John Harrison (1693 - 1776) who made the world'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.
This edition of the Navigator has Chinoiserie panels with gold leaf depicting the Battle of Trafalgar in 1805, the tea clipper Cutty sark and HMS Beagle arriving at the Galapagos Islands with Charles Darwin in the 1830s. It is limited to 50 pieces worldwide, each piece numbered and supplied with a Certificate of Authenticity.
