It is always a thrill to source clocks that stand the test of time, and this ‘Ados’ travel clock by Jaeger-LeCoultre is all the more exciting thanks to its rare green leather case. Transporting you back to the days of early international travel, it’s a welcome addition to any bedside table – whether you are at home or away.
HOW TRAVEL TRANSFORMED TIMEKEEPING
The way we keep track of time has changed considerably over the course of human history. From the use of sundials and water clocks, transitioning to mechanical timekeepers and later electrical timers regulated by satellites. Travel on a local, and later a global scale, has been a key driving force behind these changes and innovations. As our means of travelling became more efficient and our world got increasingly smaller, our methods of telling time needed to keep up.
