Watch Anatomy

There are many definitions of horology availabe but in general horology is the art of science of measuring time. The word horology is derived from the greek word ὥρα, “hour, time” and Greek: λόγος, logos, “study, speech”. Clocks, watches, clockwork, sundials, clepsydras, timers, time recorders and marine chronometers are all examples of instruments used to measure time.
