It is time for … Leccese stone clocks.

The clocks in Leccese stone in the beginning was the stone sundial. That is a simple and effective tool for measuring time. Also called, but not entirely precisely, sundials or sundials. All it took was a top, usually in stone, and a vertical element, such as a second stone with an elongated shape or even a stick, stuck in a point x of the top. That, with the passage of time and therefore of the Sun, cast its shadow on the plane itself. Based on the shade it was possible to read the passing of the hours and the passing of the days immediately. The sundial was a time measurement technique already known to the ancient Egyptians and other ancient civilizations, and was also adopted by Greeks and Romans and even seems to be.

That Neolithic man already exploited the apparent movements of the Sun to go back to an archaic form of time, which marked the different phases of his difficult, and even somewhat monotonous, day. After all, the underlying mechanism is as simple as it is ingenious. And, on the other hand, the modern hands that move on the modern dial of modern Lecce stone watches do not differ much from that shadow on the sundial plane used in the beginning.

Punctuality is not water. It is Leccese stone clocks.

No matter how many steps forward time measurement has taken since then, being punctual for an appointment is not at all easy. The lovers who are forced to wait exhausting in the cars near their partner’s house know this all too well. The many commuters daily called to desperate races in the (very difficult) prospect of catching a train on the fly to avoid waiting for their own, always mercilessly, punctually, late. The drama of our time is not having time. There is no time for ourselves, time for private life, time for sports, time for free time, time for boredom. Time to clean the house, time to chat on the phone, time to waste time in secondary occupations that fill our day. We are in a hurry.

We wake up and go in a hurry.
Shower in a hurry, breakfast in a hurry, in the car in a hurry, in traffic in a hurry, to work in a hurry. The days of those born in the 21st century are a continuous race, a race against time, against the waste of moments that will then be useful to us at the end of the day. A bit like the White Rabbit, a character born from the imagination of Lewis Carroll together with Alice and who, in that wonderland, always accompanies her in a hurry because she never has enough time to do who knows what.

Seize the moment, as long as you have the opportunity. Give away time, give away stone watches. Find a plausible excuse to give yourself a gift.
