Harrison Grasshopper Clock

One of the most interesting clocks we work on is the Harrison Grasshopper Clock made by Comitti of London. This timepiece is a replica of John Harrison's masterpiece to allow mariners to be able to determine longitude while at sea. When on a ship, this clock set on a gimbeled platform to allow it to maintain a vertical position while the ship rocked. Watch the fascinating escapement as it runs. We fully disassembled the clock, cleaned dirty pivots, bushings, and surface dirt from the 18k gold parts. We are always ready, trained, and prepared for the most unique clock repair you may require.
