As technology continues to advance and the concept of a “global economy” gains more and more acceptance. It becomes increasingly necessary to know, or at least be aware of, the time in other parts of the world. For more globally minded people it is even more critical to know the hours of daylight throughout the world. The Geochron Global Time Indicator simultaneously shows the correct time, day, date, and distribution of daylight and darkness everywhere on the Earth…at a glance. NASA, the CIA, the United States Treasury Department, the Air Force, the Navy, and the Coast Guard use the Geochron to provide simultaneous global information. Whether you are a president, potentate, business executive, student, or world traveler, Geochron is the perfect device for your global time orientation needs.
Geochron includes a 0 to 60minute analog scale, which is located at the top of the map and is set in five minute increments. The map itself is a continuous belt of mylar film in constant motion, moving from left to right one inch per hour in synchronization with the Earth`s orbit around the Sun. Precision indicators display the month, day, and time for all 40 time zones. Geochron also displays the winter solstice, summer solstice, and fall and spring equinoxes each year as well as the current seasons everywhere in the world.
The Geochron was invented more than 30 years ago by James Kilburg, inventor of the car cigarette lighter and the first automatically dialing telephone. Each Geochron is totally handcrafted to meet your specifications. It resembles a framed, lighted world map, three feet by two feet, and is ideal for wall mounting.
