ALL CLOCKS SHOW TIME…BUT…
COOL CLOCKS SHOW TIME… WITH
A STYLE !
The word CLOCK is derived from a LATIN term “CLOCCA” that means “BELL” and was first used in about 700 years ago i.e. in 14th century.
The history of clocks is very vast, and over the centuries, there have been many different kinds of clocks and also many different methods were used to calculate the exact time. In ancient period there were no clocks but people used the Sun to tell the time. After that Sundial Clocks were used, in these the shadow of sun points to a number on a circular disk that shows time. Then the period of Water Clocks came, these are the clock which were made of two containers of water, one higher than the other. Water travelled from higher container to the lower container through a tube. The containers had marks showing the water level, and the marks told the time. After that, an age of Pendulum Clocks came, the pendulum swings right and left, and as it swings, it turns a wheel. The turning wheel turns the hour and minute hands on the clock. After all these clocks came the Quartz Crystal Clocks, these were invented in 1920. Quartz is a type of crystal that looks like glass. When you apply voltage or pressure, the quartz crystal vibrates or oscillates at a constant frequency. The vibration moves the clock's hands very precisely and constantly.
So, from the above statements you all can feel that the human race has always been obsessed with the diff-diff types of clocks, and now came the modern age where the time is running very fast as well as the style of clocks is also changing rapidly.
Today, a lot of cool clocks have taken a place in many people’s heart because of their shine and style. We are listing some of them in this blog-
