Gifts for someone special, from the home of Greenwich Mean Time.

Or shop our exclusive collection of luxurious pocket watches and timepieces from Royal Observatory Greenwich, the home of Greenwich Mean Time.

Our collection takes inspiration from The National Maritime Museum, which holds a large and varied collection of astronomical and navigational instruments from astrolabes and armillary spheres to quadrants, nocturnals and sundials. An armillary sphere is a skeletal celestial globe used to represent and study the movements of the planets. It was used to symbolise wisdom and power in Elizabethan portraiture.
