Introducing a brand new edition of the navigator
Comitti are excited to announce the launch of a new version of the grasshopper sea clock, The Navigator.
The new piece has been created by cabinet maker and designer Edmund Barker and brings together a more contemporary presentation with a choice of classic finishes. For the first time customers can select a movement, gold or rhodium plated, and then choose between mahogany, walnut, carbon or black lacquer base options.
'Small details can make all the difference when it comes to high quality pieces. This new range of Navigators introduces a more contemporary approach to the design, with clean lines and refined veneer work, showing the beauty of the movement.'
THE HISTORY OF THE NAVIGATOR
The Navigator is a tribute to clockmaker John Harrison (1693 – 1776) who made the world’s first marine chronometer. His unique timepieces made it possible for the first time for British naval officers to accurately calculate their longitude position, giving them an extraordinary advantage in their quest for global exploration, trade and Empire.
The rhythmic movement of the pendulum balances brings the Navigator to life. This flagship product is handmade in our workshops and available with a choice of gold, rose gold, rhodium or black chrome plated finishes.
