      • $ 208.95
      • -40%

      Product Description

      Ship’s hourglasses were timed to the half hours of the ship’s watch. Ship navigators kept exact count of the hours: galleons wrecked on the Western Australian reefs represent the dangers of incorrectly kept time at sea.

      • Renaissance-era painters included hourglasses in their still life works to symbolize time
      • Visual reminder that time is fleeting, and best spent on the things that matter most to you
      • Represents the past (bottom), future (top), and the present (middle)
