Clocks Blog Highlights

What did people do to tell time before the advent of clocks and pocket watches? Well, there were sundials. The first grandfather clocks, also known as longcase and tall case clocks, came into being around 1650 in Western Europe, in England specifically. Long before then there were water clocks and other extraordinarily creative ways to tell time, but it really was not until around the early 1600s that timepieces as we know them today, the mechanical clock and watch kind, began to come into being. Imagine what Kings and Emperors of bygone era would pay for today's grandfather clocks or wall clocks or mantle clocks, or especially atomic clocks, or wristwatches (even a quartz one!). We have come so far in timekeeping that it is something most everyone takes for granted.
