Time … an interesting concept. Humans have always been fascinated and controlled by time. One of the most peculiar qualities of time is the fact that it is measured by motion. Time has been fascinating thinkers since ancient times. And since humans wants to control and possess everything they see around them it was just a question of time before anyone tried to make time into something “material”.

Egyptians divided the day into two 12-hour periods, and used large obelisks to track the movement of the sun. Other ancient timekeeping devices include the candle clock, but it is only very recent in our history that in 1505 a German locksmith by the name of Peter Henlein invented the world’s first portable pocket-sized clock.
