With modern quartz clocks today, we have certainly come a long way from sun-dials. However, a loud ticking clock is annoying and wont allow a peaceful environment. You can replace the loud mechanism of your favorite clock with a continuous sweep mechanism for absolute silence.
Wall clocks have been a necessity in homes and offices for centuries. But a loud clock will break the peace and tranquility of any room. To get away from the annoying tick-tock sound you can purchase a not ticking wall clock for a peaceful environment.
