OUR FAVOURITE HOROLOGICAL OBJECTS OF THE PAST

Humans have developed a multitude of ways of telling the time over our history. From the basic sundial, to water clocks and hourglasses, we have proved to be rather inventive when it comes to tracking the passing of the hours, minutes and seconds. Once the mechanical timekeeper had been perfected and sufficiently miniaturised, that creativity didn’t stop. As movements got smaller, the ability to integrate them into other objects became increasingly possible.
