History Of clocks
With over 600 years of presence in our lives, clocks can be regarded as one of the oldest devices that were created by our ancestors in the birthplace of modern civilization – Babylon. By giving us the means to track time, build schedules and control the flow of our daily routine, clocks managed to forge the look modern civilization that we are living today.
Ever wondered why some dial has IIII instead of IV as number FOUR.
Read ahead for some interesting history fact......
Once upon a time, when Roman numerals were used by the actual Roman Empire, the name of the Romans' supreme deity, Jupiter, was spelled as IVPPITER in Latin. Hesitant to put part of the god's name on a sundial or in accounting books, IIII became the preferred representation of four. Of course, IVPPITER wasn't being worshiped much by the time clocks and watches replaced sundials, but clock makers may have stuck with IIII just for the sake of tradition.
Why is 10:10 the Default Setting for Clocks and Watches?
First things first, let's get the myths out of the way. There are plenty of people out there who think that clocks in advertisements and in-store displays are set this way to memorialize Abraham Lincoln/John F. Kennedy/Martin Luther King Jr. because that was the time at which they were shot or died. In reality, Lincoln was shot at 10:15 p.m., and died the next morning at 7:22 a.m., JFK was shot at 12:30 p.m. CST and was pronounced dead 1 p.m. and MLK was shot 6:01 p.m. and pronounced dead at 7:05 p.m.
Another theory has it that 10:10 was the time that an atomic bomb was dropped on either Nagasaki or Hiroshima, and that the setting is in memory of the casualties. The Fat Man bomb was actually dropped on the former at 11:02 a.m. local time and the Little Boy on the latter at 8:15 a.m. local time.
Who invented Clock?
Clocks are ancient devices that first appeared in our history at the very beginning of the modern human civilization in Middle East and Northern Africa. However, records can indeed provide much more information about the modern age of clock history and the inventors who enabled us all to have cheap and reliable clocks today.
The real reason for the setting? Aesthetics.
The 10:10 position gives the clock or watch a number of benefits:
• The hands are not overlapping, so they're fully and clearly visible and their styling can be admired.
• The arrangement of the hands is symmetrical, which people generally find more pleasant than asymmetry, making the product more appealing to customers.
• The manufacturer's logo, usually in the center of the face under the 12, is not only visible but nicely framed by the hands.
• Additional elements on the face (like date windows or secondary dials), usually placed near the 3, 6, or 9, won't be obscured.
According to the folks at leading watch company (who set their products at 10:09:36 exactly), the standard setting used to be 8:20, but this made the face look like it was frowning. To make the products look "happier," the setting was flipped into a smile (occasionally, you'll still see the 8:20 setting on some clocks or watches where the manufacturer's logo is at bottom of the face above the 6).
Who Invented the Stopwatch?
Stopwatch is one of the most important time measuring devices of modern human history. It enabled us to expand our scientific knowledge, conquer the world during the age of sail, and provide invaluable tool for quick and reliable measurement of time. Find out more about stopwatches here.
Peter Henlein - The Inventor of the First Watch
Even though he was not the original creator of clock mechanisms, Peter Henlein is today regarded as the father of the modern age of clocks. With his 1510 invention of small pocket watch, he became instantly famous and provided inspiration for countless other innovators who came after him.
