The Two John Harrison's

This page contains a link to John Harrison our managing director and John Harrison the inventor of the chronometer (watch)

We are not 100% certain but relatively sure that John Harrison, the managing director of TecEco is a descendent of the John Harrison who invented the chronometer, solved the longitude problem, invented the bimetallic strip, caged bearings etc.

It took John's ancestor a long time to be rewarded for his tremendous efforts on behalf of the rest of society. We just hope it is a bit easier for our John Harrison!
