John Harrison’s first "sea clock", called H1, was tested on a return voyage to Portugal in 1736. It proved to be the most accurate clock ever to go to sea, but didn't quite manage to collect the £20,000 prize offered by the British government for solving the longitude problem.   H1 had many novel features. A system of swinging balances and springs prevented the ship's motion affecting its workings, and it never needed lubricating.
