Telescopes, microscopes, navigational instruments, globes, sundials, astrolabes, calculators, drawing instruments, and barographs are only some of the scientific instruments still in existence today. Precision timekeeping was paramount for astronomers mapping the stars. Many technical innovations were made thanks to the search for precision timekeeping including temperature compensation, quartz oscillators and radio-control, which have now become part of everyday clocks and watches.
These instruments are not only coveted for their influence in our scientific and mathematical history, but also as they are exquisite works of art themselves. The complex and extremely accurate mechanisms were invented to guide scientists, mariners, astronomers and explorers to navigate the unknown world.
