Geochron 945-D5 Boardroom Geochron Timepiece with 12-Hour Dial

The Geochron allows any observer to determine what time it is anywhere in the world. The colorful map is an endless belt that is driven slowly from left to right by an electric clock motor in synch with the rotation of the earth. Time zone boundaries are delineated on the map by dark blue lines which 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.
