What country did clocks come from?

That is a bit hard to answer, depending upon one's definition of the word "clock." In reality, the clock is the oldest instrument known to Man. The first clocks were calendars scratched into hard ground, as well as the sundial, both of which were developed as early as the Ice Age, variations of which have been found in as many lands as there were people. You also have the invention of numerous types of candle clocks, incense-like clocks, and as many types of hour glasses as one can possibly imagine, cropping up in various form and function throughout the entire world. Of course, one cannot forget the magnificent water clocks that told time throughout the Middle Ages. And there were also the huge weight-driven clocks of Italy, regulated by the verge-and-foliot escapement, first constructed in the early 14th Century.

If what what you want to know, though, is when the traditional first clocks appeared that are truly akin to those used today, this may best be answered by knowing that the first minute hand was created for a mechanical clock by Swiss scientist and inventor, Jost Burgi. Burgi's invention was a direct response to the call from Danish astronomer, Tycho Brahe, who stressed the need to his friend of having the most accurate measurements possible for tracking the skies. This occurred in the year 1577.
