This chapter begins with a brief description of Rupert's work on both the H2 and H3 timekeepers. It then details his trip to Paris, representing the British Horological Institute at the celebrations to mark the centenary of the death of the great French watchmaker Abraham Louis Breguet; his bout of overwork that induced another period of illness, beginning with severe nervous depression and insomnia, followed by flu and bronchitis; and the successful restoration of H2.
