Their inner workings of springs and gears, the rhythmic tick-tock as they work seems to fascinate people of all ages and lifestyles all over the world. Some may argue that time is a man-made phenomenon; others believe that humans have always recognized the passage of time. While the concept of time in humankind is arguable, man has definitely constructed the items that move in rhythm to time's passage.... 👉🏻 antique reproduction clocks


hourglasses combine history, practicality and art
The hourglass is considered to be of European origin. Also called sand clocks, hourglasses are believed to have been developed around the 8th century. 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... 👉🏻 hourglasses (sand clocks)

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 and an accessory with an interesting history.

Shadow clocks, later named sundials, were invented by Greeks and Romans and used by explorers during our age of discovery. The sundial played a fundamental role in finding local time. Watches were notoriously unreliable and needed to be reset often by using sun-time. And up till the 20th C. each locality had its own miniature time zone, often differing in minutes only.
