    Re: Harrison's H1: app and replica

    Hi Jeremy

    Can you imagine that ticking away on your bridge?  Talk about a sea trial! 

    The H1 is so other worldly that the experience of watching it keep time is almost ethereal.  There are extremely subtle moving counterbalances that took me a long time to notice.  Every bulb of metal on the end of rod moves, some like the pendulums grossly, others have motions nearly invisible.

    I highly recommend a visit to see Harrison's H1 if you are in London.  Fantastic!

    Ships used to use this wood as the stern tube bearing. I sailed on a couple of them. They always had to leak a drip of water every second or so in order not to overheat.

    I didn't know that they made clocks from that wood, except maybe for the bearings.

    Interesting about the reproduction of H1. I wonder if they could ever be mass produced on a limited edition scale for clock/time aficionados. Even then they would be far too expensive for most people.
