The passage of time is a phenomenon that has intrigued humans since its very dawn. Clocks help us make sense of it all and, with an endless number of designs and shapes, help us enjoy watching time tick away, second by second. Whether they’re basic kitchen clocks, delicately built and retro chic pocket watches, or even the enormous clock at the Palace of Westminster in the U.K. affectionately known as Big Ben, these devices play a big part in keeping our lives in order.
Subway Bosses Emmet and Ingo (from Pokémon Black, White, and their sequels) heavily rely on clocks in their work of keeping trains on schedule and making sure their battles end in a timely manner.
If you have a second to spare, take a peek at some of the beautiful artwork below.
