In 1768 Claret was appointed to the command of the frigate "Isis" on an expedition to experiment with the marine watch or chronometer , a new instrument, sailing from Aix in November of that year. He took observations at Martinique, Santo Domingo, Porto Rico, Havana, Jamaica, Colon, and New Orleans, and after touching at New York, Boston, and Newfoundland, returned to Aix on 11 October 1769. The results of this expedition were important to geography, as he established the exact position of all the points visited, and published them in his later works.ref:631
