The global extent of the British Empire and it's leading role as a naval and economic power in the 18th and 19th centuries was due primarily to the invention of a man who today is almost forgotten - John Harrison.
His ingenious nautical invention - the chronometer - made a seemingly impossible task possible: the exact determination of position and distances on the high seas. It was thanks to this safe method of navigation that the empire's fleet was able to set sail for new continents and increase the renown, wealth and worldwide influence of the British Crown. The Special Theme Edition Hommage a John Harrison recalls the era of expansion into new worlds. The partly transparent barrel is encased in a delicate 750 solid gold map of the world composed of the continents and lines of longitude and latitude. Through this skeleton structure, the worlds oceans shimmer in transparent blue precious resin.
A small diamond marks the position of the Mont Blanc massif. An engraved portrait of the inventor decorates the handmade 18-carat gold nib of this unique writing instrument, whose cap bears the Montblanc star in mother-of-pearl. John Harrison's work brought Britain naval supremacy by developing the chronometer and a method to determine longitude at sea.
Scientists denied him recognition, doubting the invention could be the work of a man from his humble background. This edition is dedicated to him as a belated tribute. A world map with latitude and longitude lines graces the transparent barrel, which reveals the precision piston mechanism inside. The Mont Blanc massif is marked by a precious stone, a mother-of-pearl Montblanc star adorns the top of the cap and the hand-crafted 18-carat gold nib bears Harrison's portrait.
