A Timepiece Which Does Not Vai

| seven months with a mean error <
| only fifleen-thnosandths of a secoi
and a maximum error of thirty-tho
sandths of a second per day. Th
means that it does not vary mo
than half a second a month, or s
seconds a year.
Compare this with the first pock
timepiece, the "Animated I

twice a day and varied an hour at
o half in (he same time! Compare
with some of the highest-pric<
watches manufactured today, whi<
often vary more than ten seconds

measuring time. Yet even this ace
racy is surpassed by some fatnoi
time-pieces, if the trade magazin
are to be believed. There have be<
accounts in tlieni of clocks that ha'
