The LONGITUDE design

The LONGITUDE design was suggested by the work of

John Harrison (1693–1776), the self-taught Yorkshire

craftsman who solved the practical problems of

building a timekeeping device accurate enough to be

used to ascertain a ship’s longitude at sea. The

graphics of the invitation interior are based on the

delicate penwork on the dial of Harrison’s ‘First Sea

Watch’ of 1759, while the other graphics are in the

style of engravings of the period.
