This paper discusses the development and evolution of the clock, with a focus on earlier developments. There is also brief mention of the wristwatch and its development.
From the Paper:"The first clocks were very different from today's digital timepieces. They included such forms of time-telling as sand clocks, water clocks, and shadow clocks. Shadow clocks, including sundials, utilize the rotation of the earth to measure the passage of time. There are also early calendrical arrangements, such as Stonehenge, which depended upon the sun to inform people about changing seasons and special days, such as the solstice and equinox times (Trefil, 1999)."
