Cartographer Matthew Flinders and his crew mapped the Australian coastline, studying plants and animals along the way. His voyage in the HMS Investigator from 1801-1803 shed new light on the natural history of Australia.
Aboard the Investigator was Ferdinand Bauer (1760-1826) who was appointed natural history artist for the voyage. Franz and Ferdinand Bauer achieved great acclaim and contributed immensely to the study, recording, and understanding of botany and nature. Stunningly precise works that were almost photo realistic in their accuracy were their hallmark.
This range of mechanical timepieces created in tribute is no less stunning and intricate in their detail and workmanship.
A round case with an exhibition caseback has the slimmest frame to mark out the minutes, exposing the full glory of each complex individual part that makes up this stunning timepiece from Earnshaw.
Beautifully honest in its representation of the mechanics of time, this is the timepiece for the connoisseur of horology. The watch is strapped with a genuine leather strap tanned in Italy.
