The word clock is derived from the Celtic words clagan and clocca meaning "bell," though in modern times "clock" generally refers to any device for measuring and displaying time. The clock is one of the oldest human inventions, meeting the need to consistently measure intervals of time shorter than the natural units (day; lunar month; and year).
Analog clocks use a fixed numbered dial or dials and moving hand or hands. It usually has a circular scale of 12 hours, which can also serve as a scale of 60 minutes, and 60 seconds if the clock has a second hand. Many other styles and designs have been used throughout the years, but the only other widely used clock face today is the 24 hour analog dial. Digital clocks display a numeric representation of time with typically one of two numeric display formats: 12-hour notation with AM/PM indicator and 24-hour notation with hours ranging 00-23. Most digital clocks use an LCD or LED display and many can update or reset themselves based on radio or Internet time servers that are tuned to national atomic clocks.
