The Greenwich meridian.
The beginning of global timekeeping, I suppose one could say.

Those Greenwich meridian stamps are perfect Stampgal.

I'm trying to find a stamp showing the time zones but no luck yet.
Also looking for any portraying the hourglass.

Stampgal: your Greenwich Meridian stamps reminded me of the role that "chronometers" have played in navigation. I highly recommend to interested stampers a small book called Longitude: The True Story of a Lone Genius Who Solved the Greatest Scientific Problem of His Time by Dava Sobel. Here is a wiki link about it.

Rod, that's two hourglasses for you and I still can't
find even one.

Can't seem to find a sun dial either.

Litho,
I posted a sundial on my first post (page 1)
Dominicana.
I called it a solar watch
(A Rod222 weak joke )

However I'd agree, not many sundials on stamps
that I can see.

OK Rod, I missed that one entirely.
Now I see it even though it's a bit hard
to make out.
