On what would have been his 325th birthday, Google honored renound watch and clock maker John Harrison with a doodle. They even got a grasshopper into the art.

A couple of years ago I saw three working replicas of Harrison’s H1, H2, and H3 timekeepers, and the original case of the successful H4. It was at Mystic Seaport in Connecticut. There were other fantastic marine timekeeping pieces as well.
