Prime Meridian Socks

Regular price £6.00 Sale

Our Prime Meridian Socks feature the iconic 0º 00’ 00” design which was inspired by the plaque that marks the Prime Meridian at the Royal Observatory, Greenwich. These soft charcoal grey socks are the perfect souvenir from the home of time.

The Prime Meridian at Greenwich has served as the reference line for Greenwich Mean Time since the late 19th century. 

Before this, almost every town in the world kept its own local time. There were no national or international conventions which set how time should be measured, or when the day would begin and end, or what length an hour might be.

With the vast expansion of the railway and communications networks during the 1850s and 1860s, the worldwide need for an international time standard became imperative so Greenwich was chosen as the centre for world time.
