The intriguing story of timekeeping, from the early Greek and Chinese waterclocks to the modern day atomic clocks. Webber introduces the eminent movers and shakers: Galileo, Leonardo, Fromanteel, Tompian, Berthoud, Le Roy and Harrison; and tells of the miniaturization that led to the first watches.
