Harrison H4 Cufflinks

Regular price £30.00 £15.00 Sale

Our Harrison H4 Cufflinks feature our exclusively designed H4 timepiece image; inserted in highly polished gold plated cufflinks, creating a timeless accessory.

They are presented in a beautiful leatherette box, making these cufflinks the perfect souvenir for horologists, watchmakers or timekeeper enthusiasts alike.

The H4 marine timekeeper is John Harrison's prize-winning longitude watch, which he completed in 1759. Harrison had been working on improving watches as a side-line to his development of the much larger H3. In 1753 a pocket watch was made to Harrison's design by watchmaker John Jefferys. This went so well that Harrison began to realise that it pointed to the longitude solution - not in H3 but in smaller watches. Work began on H4 in 1755 and, with its very stable, high frequency balance; it proved to be the successful design, eventually winning the Longitude Prize for him by an Act of Parliament in 1773.

These cufflinks are exclusive to Royal Museums Greenwich and is part of our Longitude & John Harrison collection.
