Romans built the “gongs of alarm” for the giant clock that was placed in their areas. Then came the Chinese, and then the Buddhists. In the 15th century throughout Europe spread the alarms, in which the Church tower decorated with a clock that is connected to tunes or melodies that reverberated throughout the region.
At the beginning of the 20th century , advances have allowed the production of alarm clocks at the level of mass. Up to 30 years. Twentieth century watch the original, and even early electric clock, have become part of the American home. Radio alarm clocks have become huge in the seventies and has remained the industry standard for the next 25 years.
Today, most people rely on mobile phones for daily alarms. Despite this, the clock industry is still developing.
