PROFESSOR CHRIS LINTOTT, SILVER-GILT CARRIAGE CLOCK

This travelling calendar carriage clock dates to 1747–1823. Why would such a clock need to have both lunar and sun time represented on it?

"It represents a particular moment of history when clockmakers have managed to make a glorious object that could reliably tell us the time"
