Thomas Earnshaw Men’s Investigator Chronograph Quartz Watch with White Dial Analogue Display and Brown Leather Strap ES-8001-02


Product Description

Earnshaw timepieces are modern day watchmakers, named in honour of their eighteenth century inspiration, Thomas Earnshaw, have created a new collection of watches to mark the first expedition to circumnavigate the Australian shores. HMS Investigator, which crossed the seas to the shores of Australia in 1801, was considered the best vehicle for the voyage to the Antipodes. Built as Xenophon, a bulk cargo ship, she was identified as the perfect vessel for a long exploratory voyage as her commercial role meant that she had good storage space for supplies, even though she was in fairly bad repair. After undergoing a refit to prepare her for the voyage, she was renamed the Investigator and was deemed ready to set sail. For the most part the Investigator sailed an uneventful voyage, and most remarkable were the two boxed timekeepers or chronometers built by eighteenth century watchmaker Thomas Earnshaw that were kept aboard the board. The ship’s captain, Flinders, went to shore regularly to check the settings of the chronometers against the stars. The Earnshaw chronometer was the only one working at the end of the journey, causing Flinders to refer to it in his book A Voyage to Terra Australis as “this excellent timekeeper”. To mark the craftsmanship and excellence of Thomas Earnshaw’s chronometer which was aboard the Investigator for this debut circumnavigation of the Australian shores, modern day watch brand Thomas Earnshaw has launched a stylish collection of men’s watches. Also known as Investigator, this collection of watches pays a fitting tribute to the hardy voyager. The Thomas Earnshaw Investigator watch is a stylish piece based on the past history of the brand. The ES-8001-02 has a solid stainless case plated in gold, complimented by a smart crisp white layered dial and decorated with gold numbers and indices. The hands are luminous and the second hand has our famed double E. This timepiece is powered by a Japanese chronograph quartz movement with a date window and is finished off with a matching soft brown leather strap that comfortably connects to your wrist by our unique E buckle. With a hardened dome mineral lens, and water resistant up to 5ATM, the Investigator is a hardy watch, like its namesake, and offers the best in timekeeping for a for a man whose interests lie in learning about the rich stories of adventure and exploration of the past.
