Meditações - relógios, máquinas maravilhosas

Clocks were perhaps the most marvelous technological achievements of the early modern period, and European rulers treasured them. As courts competed for technical supremacy, patrons encouraged innovations in their mechanical technology. As much display pieces and astronomical instruments as timekeepers, the most valued clocks expressed the advanced character of their interior mechanisms through splendidly decorated cases and complex dials.
