Contrary to the widely held assumption that the slave mode
of production and its dependence on agricultural seasons necessarily fostered a predominantly natural (and hence precapitalist) time-awareness among southern masters, the following analysis of planters' application of the mechanical timepiece to plantation labour not only shows that slave-holders managed to introduce the clock and watch to the field, but suggests that the strategies such an introduction demanded made them think and act like clock-conscious capitalists.
