In its simplest form, the equation of time is defined as the difference between the time displayed by the position of the sun (as by a sundial) and the time displayed by any modern clock.

For centuries, watch- and clockmakers have utilized mechanisms indicating the equation of time to display the difference between a true solar day and a mean (average) solar day.

Mainly seen in complex astronomical clocks of the past, modern watchmakers makers sometimes feature an equation of time display on their highest-grade movements. Audemars Piguet, Breguet, Blancpain, and Panerai have all featured the equation of time complications, usually paired with a perpetual calendar.

“Your heart was warm and happy

With the lilt of Irish laughter

Every day and in every way

Now forever and ever after."
