Weird AttributeError With Imports

I'm getting a "AttributeError: 'module' object has no attribute 'clock'" 
when importing a module from within two packages related to the line: 
"self.lastTime = time.clock()" in the __init__() of the class Time in 
the target module.

The module ( sits in a package hierarchy such as the following 
"packageA.packageB.mytime", and imports the Python module "time" like 
this: "import time"

In another module outside of both packages (in a folder that holds the 
other package folders) I do this:

from packageA.packageB import mytime

timer = mytime.Time() #Throws the above AttributeError

Strangely it seems that if I create a Time object in 
everything works perfectly. I have no idea why I'm getting this error, 
so any help is welcome!
