watch concept shows origin of time: the position of the sun is the clearest indication for the passing of time

It is the rotation of the earth that provides rhythm in peoples life.This rotation creates day and night and changes the seasons. It is the position of the sun that tells about the progression of the day. Here we find the origin of time. Ever since the first human being lived on this planet, the position of the sun is the clearest indication for the passing of time. The day begins when the sun comes up and ends when it goes down. Nothing has a bigger influence on the perception of time and activities of the human being than the radiation of light and warmth which floods the world in the morning, and the coolness and darkness coming at sundown.

don’t worry about minutes or seconds,create freedom: follow the sun.
