The Grasshopper Clock is based on the first marine chronometer made by the world’s most famous clock maker, John Harrison (1693 - 1776). His marine timepieces made it possible for seafarers to navigate accurately for the first time and can be viewed at the Royal Observatory in Greenwich, London. The clock features the “grasshopper escapement” operated by two inter-linked pendulums that compensated for the motion of a ship. The movement is hand made from solid brass, polished and rhodium plated. The dials have an enamel finish and the time is indicated by fine Breguet hands. Height: 21” (53cm) Width: 13.5” (34cm) Depth: 10” (25cm)
