Why call it an hourglass?

Hourglass is the term commonly used to describe a sand timer, a sand clock, a sand glass and even an egg timer. Although they are called hourglasses, the amount of time that it takes for the sand to run from one bulb to the other through the neck or orifice of an hourglass is not necessarily exactly one hour. The running times for tkyoung.com standard hourglasses start at 30 seconds and go up to 1 hour. In addition to that custom running times are available by special order.


There is an hourglass in Japan said to be the world's largest. It is located in the Nima Sand Museum and it runs for an entire year. It is called an hourglass, a one year sand clock as well as a sand calendar and contains one ton of sand.
