Time moves on - or so it seems

By HobbitDave
Well - linear time moves on, anyway, as we enter 2020. Vertical time doesnt move on, and some say that ultimately time doesnt exist at all..... Interesting one for metaphysical perceptions...centuries ago The Aztecs had some fascinating ideas on this subject...as did other cultures and belief-systems.

The picture is a Georgian pocket watch Ive been refurbishing, made in 1763 by Bradshaw and Ryley of Coventry, and still working well, over 250 years later. The craftsmanship and hand-engraving that went into these early timepieces is wonderfully intricate - you can quite understand why the average watchmakers apprenticeship was seven years!

Happy New Year to everyone on EPZ!
