The clock face ever so slowly spirals over the course of twelve hours, moving a rolling ball precisely around, telling the time as it goes. Brilliant! By the way, for all sorts of wonderful… free printable calendar templates.
Clock The clock is one of the oldest human inventions, meeting the need to consistently measure intervals of time shorter than the natural units: the day, the lunar month, and the year.

Some simple, relatively uncontroversial definitions of time include "time is what clocks measure" and "time is what keeps everything from happening at once". Temporal measurement and history
