HISTORY OF CLOCKS
Christiaan Huygens is accredited with inventing the first pendulum clock in 1656. Huygens was a dutch mathematician and scientist. He was also known to work as an astronomer, physicist, probabilist and horologist.
The pendulum clock uses a swinging weight for timekeeping (one swing lasting exactly one second), which was however highly affected by environmental disturbances.
These innovations led to the mechanical clock continued, with miniaturisation leading to domestic clocks in the 15th century, and personal watches in the 16th.
Over time mechanisms were invented to lower the distance of the swings as these made timekeeping increasingly inaccurate, built on by William Clement in 1680.
