[67]  It’s interesting to note that the concept of Time and its Financial Value was celebrated 300 years ago as avidly as it is nowadays.

      Various Time-Measuring Devices are known to have been in use since ancient times:

Sun dial, Candle, Water and Sand Clock, but it’s the invention of the balance spring (1657) that made early pocket-watches useful, affordable (for the more affluent) and handy time-keepers.

      Gulliver, being a sea-surgeon, needed one, and evidently could have afforded it.

If Time is Money, how many euro/dollars are you old?
