60 seconds in a minute. 60 minutes in an hour. 24 hours in a day. 365 days in a year.
Have you ever really thought about time? It’s been with us since we were born, and will be with us when we die, all recorded. A time to get up in the morning, go to bed, eat, go to work and to go home.
To a small child time is endless. To an adult it always seems like there is never enough of it. In all of our lives, we measure time.
Hello and Welcome to World Class Timepieces.
Since you’ve found your way here then chances are you love watches, and most likely all types of timekeeping devices.
I know that for myself, fascination of time and the constant checking of a clock began at an early age and continues on to this day.
I remember as a boy I had a small hourglass much like the one in the picture. I would sit and stare at it for what would seem like hours watching as the sand passed through it.
There was something comforting in watching it, and trying to train my brain to know exactly when it would run out even when looking away from it.
Not everyone can understand this, but if you’re still reading then you’re probably nodding your head right now and know exactly what I’m talking about.
Ever since early man first looked up and took notice of the movement in the stars above him and tried to figure out ways to gauge and map their movements, have we been fascinated with time.
Soon thereafter he would attempt to start recording the passage of time using more and more sophisticated methods as the ages wore on.
In the articles and reviews to follow we’ll take a look at timekeeping devices and man’s obsession with it, focusing heavily on modern day luxury watches.
I hope you’ll find your stay here enjoyable and enlightening.
