    The Antikythera mechanism

    A shipwreck 
    More than Thousand years ago
    
    A ship that sinked 
    Along the Antikytheran coast
    
    Discoverd thousands of years 
    Later
    
    Aboard an engine 
    A machine 
    Of such complexity 
    Unknown
    
    The mechanics of time
    Schematic of Antikythera mechanism

    Schematic of Antikythera mechanism

    "Said" to be invented by Archimedes
    A great Greek scientist
    Originator of many
    inspired by the wise from Egypt...

    What is the exact time
    Tell me?
    
    Nobody knows...
    And yet
    Time ticks with the precision
    Of a cosmic clock
    
    Time for a watch
    in real time
    no?
