This chapter details the completion of H3's restoration. One year after setting up the Royal Astronomical Society's (RAS) clock in the Society's library in early 1929, Rupert's attention turned once again to H3. Just as John Harrison had had the greatest problems with this machine, so it was with Rupert: H3 seemed fated to be embroiled in the most complicated and contorted series of events during its lengthy restoration.

Keywords:   Rupert Gould, clock restoration, timekeepers, H3
