At History of Coventry#Clocks and watches it says "William Watson, who was sheriff of Coventry in 1682, became famous for making an ingenious astronomical clock", so it would be nice to have this apparent contradiction clarified.. SamuelTheGhost (talk) 14:23, 4 October 2011 (UTC)
interesting, it definately says Samuel watson on the clock dial for the astronomical clock, and the herbert museum page is pretty clear on 'samuel' being sherriff, perhaps william is his middle name?? I'll see if I can dig anything out. EdwardLane (talk) 15:26, 4 October 2011 (UTC)
