History of Clocks

Can you imagine living without a clock? About 3500 BC sundials were invented, then about 1400 BC they had water clocks. The water clocks were better than sundials but still not accurate. In about 1510 a spring powered clock was invented, but not until 1577 was a minute hand added. This was still not very accurate, then about 1656 the pendulum clock was developed and by 1700 it had a minute hand.

There was difficulty keeping them going, so about 1840 an external battery was added, then by 1906 the battery was in the clock. My parents were married in 1925, and for a wedding present they were given a key wound mantel clock, so they did not convert all clocks to battery by that time.

The Swiss are noted for their clocks and watches. My 3rd great grandfather owned a watch factory in Lelocle Switzerland in the early 1800’s. There is a famous watch maker in Lelocle today. Today many of our clocks and watches have Swiss movements.
