Greenwich Timepieces

As the home of Greenwich Mean Time (GMT), the Greenwich Royal Observatory sets the time for every nation on Earth. Due largely to traditional excellence and scope of the British Navy shipping charts, which measured Longitude from Greenwich, in 1884 an International Commission confirmed the Royal Observatory as the Prime Meridian of the World and the baseline for the International Time Zone System. Accurist’s reputation has been built on the design of superb time-pieces, elegant in looks and exceptional in their reliability and accuracy. It is this reputation that has led to the design of the Greenwich Commemorative range of watches.
