The nature of time hasn't changed, but the ways in which we measure time have. The accelerating sense of time created by a society that now measures seconds and nano-seconds, expects instant responses from technology and has every moment of the day perfectly scheduled, has turned time into our master. And that is why it can be a relief to escape from the digital and digitized omnipresent nature of time that measures every second with electric clarity, and go back to the old fashioned pace and the accompanying classic way of measuring time with grandfather and mantle clocks. Classic clocks like this Howard Miller Rothwell Wall Clock as sold by, are not just an ornament, though they do add an old fashioned presence and grace to any home, they also help make the passage of time feel more controllable, and less inevitable. The complex curving lines and the degree of ornamentation of this clock as well as other classic clocks as give the measurement of time physical depth and patience, rather than the cold clarity of digital precision. The story of the clock is the story of how humans measure time, and as this post on the clocks blog, Clocks Story discusses, the measurement of time is also an evolution in the human consciousness and perception of time. If you enjoy a good old fashioned clock, stop by to discover grandfather clocks, mantle clocks and wall clocks that can do more than just fill out your interior design scheme, but give you a richer sense of time as well.
