What is Geochron

The Original Geochron

The Geochron World Clock allows any observer to determine what time it is anywhere in the world.
Physically the Geochron looks like a framed world map, about 2×3 ft. in size. The colourful map itself is an endless belt that is driven slowly from left to right by an electric clock motor in synchronism with the rotation of the earth. All known legal time zone boundaries are delineated on the map by dark blue lines which in most cases, converge on lettered pointers on the top edge of the map. These letters identify the standard time zones and also represent the short wave radio prefix for that zone.

Specifically, the Geochron illustrates:
  • Legal time zones
  • Greenwich Mean time
  • Greenwich Apparent time
  • Local Apparent time
  • Moment of sunrise
  • Moment of sunset
  • Duration of daylight
  • Sun’s meridian passage
  • Sun’s equation of time
  • Degrees of latitude and longitude

Four Models of The Geochron World Clock:
All the models functionality is exactly the same, however the surround of the clocks are different. The map runs the same, the seasons change the same and both include a minute analogue dial in the top right hand corner of the front panel. This dial allows for more accurate time keeping because it displays the exact minute after the hour and runs in unison with the map.

The major differences are aesthetic.
The Original Kilburg – available with a vinyl surround in a number of different finishes/colours, although the most popular by far is black.
The Contemporary Model – this is the best selling model, and as the name suggests works well in any modern environment. The surrounds for the Contemporary Models include;
  1. Stainless Steel - Polished like a mirror finish or Brushed (matt  finish)
  2. Powder Coats – White, Silver or Black (this is a high gloss paint finish and our newest addition to the range and is proving a winner, particularly the White Powder Coat, as it matched your Apple range of products!)
  3. Anodized Aluminium - Gold, Silver or Black
The Executive Model – comes with a choice of 6 Natural Wood veneers
The Boardroom Model - features a special “cove moulding” on their natural wood
