Clock

A clock is an instrument for telling time and, more generally, for measuring the passage of time. It consists essentially of a motor, a power transmission and control system, and the actual display of time, the dial.

From pendulum clocks to solar-powered models, in many eras the clock has transcended the function for which it was designed – that of accurately recording the passage of time – to become a status symbol, a decoder of the customs and habits of different peoples and different generations.
