Watches are much more than just time-measuring devices; They are objects loaded with history and meaning. In this category, we will explore the fascinating worlds of ancient hourglasses, Templar clocks, sundials and medieval navigators' clocks. Each of these watches tells a unique story that dates back to times past.

Hourglasses: Marking Time Calmly

Hourglasses are one of the oldest devices for measuring time. Used since ancient times, these clocks consist of two glass bulbs joined by a narrow neck that allows sand to flow from one side to the other. Time is measured by observing how much sand has passed from one bulb to the other. These clocks were common on ships and were used to measure work shifts and religious events.

Templar Clocks: The Time of the Knights

Templar clocks are a piece of medieval history that still fascinates many. These watches, used by the Knights Templar, featured intricate designs and religious symbols. They were symbols of the discipline and devotion of this military order. Templar clocks are often displayed in museums as silent witnesses to an age of knights and crusades.

Sundials: The Science of Light

Sundials are a wonderful combination of art and science. These clocks work by the shadow cast by a gnomon (a metal arm or rod) on a surface marked with hour lines. Sundials have been used by cultures around the world for centuries to determine the time of day from the position of the sun in the sky. They are an example of human ingenuity and understanding of celestial movements.

Medieval Navigators' Clocks: The Guide to the High Seas

Medieval navigators' watches were essential instruments for sailors venturing into the unknown seas. These clocks, like the astrolabe and the sundial, allowed navigators to determine their position on the high seas by observing the stars and the sun. These watches were the compass of the Middle Ages and contributed to the discovery of new worlds.
