Time is omnipresent in the modern world.
Day-to-day time and longer term dates, dating and chronology are the clocks for all that we humans do, and time represents the monetary basis for billing in most areas of work.
We at LawPundit are always amazed that more people in all professions do not share our interest in prehistoric stargazing, ancient astronomy and megalithic cultures, all of which involved man's time-keeping long ago -- and all of which serve as timekeepers' precedents for what we call "time" now.
In this vein, the new Jaquet Droz Bird Repeater is featured at the Robb Report at FrontRunners: Jaquet Droz.
For a description of the mechanical complications of this watch, which costs about a half a million dollars and includes movable birds, see the Robb Report.
Please keep in mind that our interest in these watches is not so much how much they cost, but rather the human ingenuity and creativity that they represent.
This is just a beautiful watch, whose complex machinery is a joy to behold.
I have a special personal reason for featuring this "bird watch".
See the next posting about a more ancient time-keeping bird.
