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 60-minute 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
