Watch the sun rise and set around the Earth in real time, in all time zones.
The Geochron is the only mechanical world clock ever made showing the sunlight pattern on the earth in real time.

With a six square foot backlit museum quality lithograph map that moves, the Geochron Original Kilburg is a stunning conversation piece with a variety of finishes to fit any decor. Follow the seasons, months, days and seconds - with 300 moving parts. As a precision work of art, the Geochron is entirely mechanical. No computers, no circuit boards and it has stayed true to its original design for 50 years, The Geochron is - and will always be - a mechanical timepiece of over three hundred moving components to create the finest global clock in the world. It is the only mechanical geographic chronometer made today. All Geochron world clocks are handmade to order to deliver the high quality that is expected of the same Geochrons installed at the White House, the European Space Agency, NASA, the Jet Propulsion Lab and the 135 installations in the Pentagon. Of course, Bill Nye the Science guy has one. This is truly a visual feast of terrestrial movement.

It’s also a stunning display of the Earth in real-time on your wall. At 2' x 3' in size, the three hundred moving parts in the Geochron display global time and the sun’s daylight pattern on Earth in real-time as it is continually rises and sets on a high quality lithographic map that is driven from left to right by mechanical servos in sync with the rotation of the earth. Like the Earth, the sun never sets on the Geochron. At the same time, the Sun’s Terminator Line mechanically morphs minute by minute, showing the seasons passing through the Northern and Southern hemispheres at exactly the same aspect as the earth’s 23.4° axial tilt. Includes clock and wall mount.
