For a drawing of the Z balance,see Mercer, the Introduction, p. X. as well as Mercer p. 60. In the second text, it is noted that the balance was usedas late as 1818 by John Roger Arnold.John Roger Arnold, son of John Arnold the great chronometer maker and inventor, was born in 1769 andapprenticed to his father in 1783. He became Free of the Clockmakers' Company in 1796 and in the following year he joined his father in the firm of Arnold &Son.
