Sinclair Harding  -  H1

In May of 1714 representations from Her Majesty's Fleet, Merchants and Merchant-Men demanded the Government encourage the solution of the Longitude problem and in July of that year the Longitude Act was passed offering up to 20,000 for a method of determining Longitude at Sea.

In the mid 1720's Yorkshire born John Harrison started work on what would be the first of his clocks, H1 that would work on board ships and so solve the Longitude problem. In 1772 after a lifetimes work, culminating in the watch H4, John Harrison was paid the final balance of the 20,000 reward.

In 1999 Sinclair Harding started work on a clock in homage to John Harrison. Nearly 5 years in the making the Sinclair Harding H1 is a wonderful combination of art and fascinating mechanics, all finished to an exquisite standard.

Sinclair Harding H1 - Clock for the Discriminating Buyer

Approximately 3/4 (24" wide x 18" deep x 18" high) of the original size, this still impressive piece puts on show Harrison's inventions, from the simple yet significant roller mounting of the Spring barrel arbor through the elegance of the Grasshopper escapement to the to the mind-boggling complexity of the Grid Iron compensation mechanism.
