In two parallel stories, the clockmaker John Harrison builds the marine chronometer for safe navigation at sea in the 18th Century and the horologist Rupert Gould becomes obsessed with restoring it in the 20th Century.
Sir Charles Pelham:
How can you tell if a clock is running 5 seconds faster, or slower?
John Harrison: My own pendulum clock is adjusted to one second a month.
Sir Charles Pelham: O-ho-ho, no clock can be that accurate.
John Harrison: Mine can.
During the entire movie, when H1 is seen, the ticking that can be heard belongs to H3. The actual H1 and H2 tick in a rather dull way, but H3 is instantly recognizable, which is probably why its sound was used for H1 and H2 too. H4 appears to use the correct sound.
