Mechanical Clock

Time was actually a measure of events before the timepiece was invented, the main one being the Sun crossing the sky. No universal time actually existed, only a local one. That meant that once you agreed to meet someone at sunset, you had to clearly state where that was, because the Sun is always setting somewhere.And of course, what clocks made possible, they soon made necessary. In a clock-driven world, most of us are now either 'on time' 'ahead of schedule,' or 'running late.'
