The Arago Medallion

Posted on January 22, 2015 by Gary Carruthers

Place Colette, Paris, 22nd January 2015

I've come to Le Nemours café in Place Colette for lunch so many times in the last 16 years. Indeed it was here that I first started sketching designs for watches.

Only today though, to my joy, do I discover this Arago medallion at my feet, marking it as on the Paris meridian line, runner up to Greenwich in the race to become the Prime Meridian, time's Ground Zero.
