Time is something that cannot be brought back once it is gone. It is simply irreversible. Martin Luther King Jr. once said, “We must use time wisely and forever realize that the time is always ripe to do right.” Today, we take knowing the time and the day of the year for granted, but for our ancestors it was far more difficult.
The facts about the nation that first developed the concept of time has been the subject of considerable debate among scholars for many years. Some claim
that Babylonians made the first contribution to the concept of time as they invented the “sexagesimal system (the numbering system we use to tell time today), and were the ones who divided the day into 24 hours, each hour into minutes, and each minute into 60 seconds. Others indicate that Greece was the first nation that came up with the concept of time. In fact, Egyptians were the ones who created gnomons, the first device for indicating the time of day dating from about 3500 BC. However, the first mechanical clocks were invented in Europe at around the start of the 14th century, and became the standard timekeeping device until the pendulum clock was
invented in 1656 by the Dutch scientist Christian Huygens. The important mechanisms invented by Huygens for the pendulum clock and balance spring clock have become core technologies for today’s timepieces. The Wood Trick company has developed a unique model called “Pendulum Clock” that has a very similar mechanism to Huygens’s original clock! The impeccable design and high quality of the clock will not leave anyone indifferent! “Pendulum clock” will become an exceptional supplement to your interior, and an excellent addition to your Wood Trick collection.
