Literary Timepieces

For those of you who just happen to be reading late Medieval, Renaissance, and Early Modern works anyways, especially of the literary variety, keep an eye out for time pieces for me, will you? Especially hourglasses and mechanical clocks, although sundials would be of passing interest as well. I already know about the Divine Comedy reference, which is pretty sketchy, but may be the oldest proof of when the mechanical clock was invented.
