Etymology 1Edit

Kanji in this term
とき > と
Grade: 2
(ateji)
けい
Grade: 2
(ateji)
Irregular kan’on
Alternative spelling 土圭

From Middle Chinese 土圭 (tʰuoX kwei, literally “earth, clay + stack of clay tablets”, a kind of sundial used in the Zhou Dynasty).[1][2][3]

The 土圭 spelling is the original form, with the kan'on reading of tokei. This has been largely superseded by the spelling 時計 in modern writing, which uses the character as ateji (当て字).
