Egyptians in 1500 BC. People of Egypt invented a mechanical way of
calculating time by the flow of running water. Italians monks were
the first to invent accurate clocks. The year was 1524 AD. The
clocks were meant to tell the time when monks needed to pray. At
that time only acoustical indicators were used, there were no
minute and hour hands.
