  • Vindication at last - John Harrison, one of the world's greatest clockmakers, invented what he claimed to be the perfect pendulum clock in the mid-18th century. His peers at the time chastised and ridiculed Harrison's plan. At the Royal Observatory in Greenwich, Clock B as it's known - was recently constructed to Harrison's specifications - and has vindicated him by losing only five-eighths of a second over a period of 100 days setting a Guinness World Record.
