Sailing ships were on a 24-hour schedule. A crew divided in three groups worked four-hour shifts, with a couple of two-hour dog-watches in between to break the schedule. Only in extreme conditions when 'all hands' were called on deck, was it four hours on, eight hours off. A 30-minute hourglass placed next to the helmsman was turned each time the sand ran through. At the same time he rang the ships bell. One bell for the first glass, two for the second, up to eight for the last half hour of the watch, the signal for a new shift to begin. A half hour on board was called "Glass".

The function of the hourglass before the introduction of the chronometer was to keep track of time, essential for calculating longitude. Sailing from Cape Town east to Australia you really didn't want to end up on the infamous reefs out there. Finding latitude was done with sextants and tables. To define longitude, as parallel to the equator, time had to be measured properly. This handsome, classic hourglass once ruled the schedule on a French Admiral's command vessel. A wonderful gift, an accessory with an interesting history.

An advancement over the sundial and water clock, which had their own disadvantages, hour-glasses were smaller than other devices for keeping time and were the most dependable method of time-keeping for a number of applications. Hourglasses were very popular on board ships, as they were accurate and not easily affected by the motion of the ship, no matter how violently the ship rocked...continue reading about hourglasses (sand clocks) >>
