The new 'John Harrison' watch, designed by iconic watchmaker and watch designer Girard-Perregaux, doubles as both an elegant timepiece as well as a tribute to John Harrison. The face of the 'John Harrison' watch features a map of part of the world, which according to Hypebeast is a depiction of "the original journey taken by Harrison's son back in 1761 to test the accuracy of is father's H-4 timepiece."

The watch showcases a sophisticated black leather band, 41mm white gold casting and a 24 time zone display and engraved rotor. Around the edge of the face is printed a wide range of worldly city names. The 'John Harrison' watch is a very tasteful piece of jewelry for men and is a limited edition item as only 50 were made.
