THE EARLY HISTORY OF MARINE CHRONOMETER BEGAN WITH A SERIES OF SEAFARING TRAGEDIES AND CULMINATED, IN 1761, WITH A NOTABLE VICTORY. THE VICTOR WAS JOHN HARRISON ESQ.
Unable to accurately plot their position, many ships foundered during the early 18th century. To find a solution, the British government offered the Longitude Prize to anyone who could devise a method to determine a ship’s longitude. Eventually, with a chronometer accurate to less than half a degree, John Harrison collected his £20,000 reward from the Board of Longitude.
“My grandfather Tony’s tenacity and innovation helped to make Thomas Mercer world renowned, leading the way in nautical, precision timekeeping, whilst adhering to a classically British design and ethos.”
