Christopher Ward C9 Harrison Automatic


Christopher Ward introduced the Harrison Automatic to celebrate the H4 time keeping piece first designed by John Harrison in solving the problem of longitude faced by sailors. Sailors needed a way to mark their locations on a map so that they could return to that place. At that time sailors were reliant on the sailor being able to accurately compare his time with that in Greenwich. This was very difficult without a clock so Mr. Harrison built one. By using John Harrison’s clock invention one could determine the longitude of any given location by looking at the clock when the sun was at its highest. For example, if the clock shows it s 3:00 when it is noon locally then you know you are a third of the way around the world. Since a circle has 360 degrees a third of it would be 120 degrees which would be your longitude. The clock was first tested in 1736 after five years of testing. From this clock the time keeping industry gets the bimetallic strip and the caged roller bearing. A bimetallic strip is used to keep time keeping mechanisms accurate in varying temperatures. This strip s also used in thermometers, thermostats and heating devices. The Caged roller bearing we get the ball bearing that is so important in many tools today.
