Time Off the Wrist: Points of Reference
While we would assume a large percentage of Worn & Wound readers tell the time with a watch, there’s no denying that a significant portion of the population relies on their cell phone, a computer, or simple clocks in shared spaces to know what time it is. In this piece from 2017, part of our Time Off the Wrist series, Brad Homes takes us through early methods of telling the time that seem even further removed from what we all experience now. The next time you see a watch you’d love to own were it not for a few millimeters in diameter in either direction, or you look at your watch box and just can’t make a decision, reflect on the relief we should all feel that we no longer rely on the local “knocker-upper” to keep us on time.
