Tom,
I have just spotted your post about “the fishy smell” and although I have yet to experience this, you are quite correct about Whale oil being used to lubricate clocks but i didn’t know they used it on watches too. I believe they also used olive oil and fish jaw bone oil – http://www.nyelubricants.com/history.shtml.
