GEOCHRON TECHNICAL FEATURES

CLOCK MAP
Each gear is individually hand-cut to ensure optimum synchronization.

Manual controls - The Geochron has three simple control knobs. Two are located at the base of the unit and used primarily for the initial setting. One knob moves the map horizontally to set the time and day of the week and is also used to determine time of sunrise, sunset and the number of daylight hours at any location at a time other than current. The other knob sets the date indicator and light pattern. A third knob controls the minute dial located at the Geochron's upper right hand corner.

Each world map is custom printed on state-of-the-art mylar film using specially-formulated inks designed to make the map resistant to ultraviolet light.

The Geochron map is reproduced in part from Chronoflexpositives of the U.S. Naval Oceanographic Chart #1262.

Legal time zone information is based on data from the U.S. Department of Defense Mapping, Time Zone Chart #76.

Delineation of the timezones and designs of the time scale are original with Geochron.
