Once upon a time people had more time on their hands. There was much less travelling back then and noone had to be at work at a specific time. Everyone went about their day at their own homes. The alarm was a rooster crowing and during the day the sun was the clock. But then citys started to develop with workplaces that you had arrive at in a specific time. Shops had to be opened and closed at the correct time. The sound of church bells gave notice when it was time to start and end the workday. Now everyone has a watch or a clock and here is the place you can purchase a clock made out of natural material.
