Comitti remains the oldest traditional barometer maker in the world with a heritage that goes back to Evangelista Torricelli who made the first mercury barometer in the 17th century.
The first instruments made were of the stick type but the "banjo" shape became popular with the invention of the wheel barometer by Robert Hooke in 1665.
Many of the instruments made in Comitti's London workshops have become established as English classics and today are sought after as valuable antiques.
