A little bit of history. In 1582 Galileo, at that time he was a kid, he watched the swaying chandeliers in a cathedral, and noted that the time of oscillation was always the same regardless of the amplitude of the oscillation itself. Galileo threw the groundwork for the subsequent laws of motion and theory of universal gravitation by Isaac Newton. The first pendulum clock was designed by the Dutch astronomer Christian Huygens in 1656.
