How do you measure your 24 hours? Horology, the art and science of measuring time, has kept horologists like watchmakers and clockmakers busy for centuries.

Abraham-Louis Breguet (1747–1823) has been called the father of modern horology due to the mechanical advancements and inspired craftsmanship he employed in his designs. I won't give up my high school Timex but I sure can appreciate Breguet's work.
