Physically the Geochron looks like a framed world map, about 2??3 ft. in size. The colorful 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.\u003c\/p\u003e\r\n\u003cp\u003eSize: The Original Kilburg is 34 1\/4\" Wide x 22 3\/8\" High x 5\" Deep\u003c\/p\u003e\r\n\u003ch2\u003eSpecifically, the Geochron illustrates:\u003c\/h2\u003e\r\n\u003cul\u003e\r\n\u003cli\u003eLegal time zones\u003c\/li\u003e\r\n\u003cli\u003eGreenwich Mean time\u003c\/li\u003e\r\n\u003cli\u003eGreenwich Apparent time\u003c\/li\u003e\r\n\u003cli\u003eLocal Apparent time\u003c\/li\u003e\r\n\u003cli\u003eMoment of sunrise\u003c\/li\u003e\r\n\u003cli\u003eMoment of sunset\u003c\/li\u003e\r\n\u003cli\u003eDuration of daylight\u003c\/li\u003e\r\n\u003cli\u003eSun's meridian passage\u003c\/li\u003e\r\n\u003cli\u003eSun's equation of time\u003c\/li\u003e\r\n\u003cli\u003eDegrees of latitude and longitude\u003c\/li\u003e\r\n\u003c\/ul\u003e\r\n\u003ch2\u003eTwo Models of Geochron\u003c\/h2\u003e\r\n\u003cp\u003eThere are two models of the Geochron World Clock: Original Kilburg and The Boardroom. Each model has slightly different features, though functionality is exactly the same. The map runs the same, the seasons change the same and both include a minute analog 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.\u003c\/p\u003e\r\n\u003cp\u003eThe major differences are aesthetic. Upgrade panels are available on the Original Kilburg model. These upgrades are aside from the seven vinyl finishes available at an entry level price. The upgrades include; Stainless Steel, Powder Coats, Anodized Aluminum and Natural Wood veneers. Boardroom models feature a special \"cove molding\" on their natural wood front panels. \u003c\/p\u003e\r\n\u003ch2\u003eTwo Maps of Geochron\u003c\/h2\u003e\r\n\u003cp\u003eFor the first time in the 50 year history, Geochron has introduced a brand new map option. You now have a choice between standard political map that has been the standard barer since Mr Kilburg designed the Geochron and the new topographical map that looks like the earth as it would from space, at no additional cost!\u003c\/p\u003e\r\n\u003cp\u003eThis is the earth as it actually looks from space with the addition of some subtle dimensions to show ocean depths. The topographical map is printed using the same super high quality lithographic printer as the standard political map and includes all of the same time zones and clock features. The topographic map includes country borders but does not include the country names to not clutter this beautiful map.

Inventor of the Geochron.\" width=\"200\" height=\"292\" align=\"right\" hspace=\"3\" vspace=\"3\"\u003e Kilburg was a mechanical engineer who perfected his craft and knack for ingenuity while living in Luxembourg. After moving to America, Kilburg devoted his life to creating innovations such as the car cigarette lighter, the first automatic dialing telephone, as well as the automated maraschino cherry pitter. The Geochron however was inspired by less practical reasons. In 1962, Mr. Kilburg was overseas visiting relatives in Luxembourg. Unable to make the trip to Europe, his wife Dorothy picked up the phone to call him one day. With some help from the international operator, she got through to California. Unfortunately for her husband, it happened to be 2:00 a.m. This gave Mr. Kilburg all the inspiration he needed to create the world's first accurate global time machine. In 1965, the Geochron was born. After many years in California's bay area, Geochron's factory moved to Portland, Oregon in the summer of 2007 where it continues to manufacture this incredible product.\u003c\/p\u003e\r\n\u003ch2\u003eThe Legacy Continues Today\u003c\/h2\u003e\r\n\u003cp\u003eFor over 50 years, the Geochron has been used by world renowned business leaders, dignitaries and diplomats and even by those in the White House. Today, the legacy continues. You can still own an original, hand-made of the same exacting standards as originally specified by Jim Kilburg in 1965.\u003c\/p\u003e","published_at":"2017-09-19T17:14:02-05:00","created_at":"2017-09-19T17:14:03-05:00","vendor":"Geochron","type":"Geochron","tags":["Geochron","Price_$500+"],"price":233700,"price_min":233700,"price_max":235700,"available":true,"price_varies":true,"compare_at_price":253700,"compare_at_price_min":253700,"compare_at_price_max":257700,"compare_at_price_varies":true,"variants":[{"id":46484272012,"title":"Black \/ 12 Hour (AM\/PM) \/ United States","option1":"Black","option2":"12 Hour (AM\/PM)","option3":"United States","sku":"GEO-KB-AA-01","requires_shipping":true,"taxable":true,"featured_image":{"id":28055074636,"product_id":11707373772,"position":1,"created_at":"2017-09-19T17:14:03-05:00","updated_at":"2019-10-20T18:51:01-05:00","alt":"Original Kilburg Geochron with Anodized Aluminum Finish by Geochron Incorporated","width":700,"height":467,"src":"https:\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/1180\/1062\/products\/44b86ded96d29f823a24c1a2c3a8c1c1.jpg?v=1571615461","variant_ids":[46484272012,32644302078031,32644302110799,32644302143567,32644302176335,32644302209103,32644302274639,32644302307407,32644302340175,32644302372943,32644302405711,32644302438479]},"available":true,"name":"Original Kilburg Geochron with Anodized Aluminum Finish by Geochron Incorporated -

The Original Geochron Original Kilburg Geochron

The Geochron 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 colorful 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.

Size: The Original Kilburg is 34 1/4" Wide x 22 3/8" High x 5" Deep

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

Two Models of Geochron

There are two models of the Geochron World Clock: Original Kilburg and The Boardroom. Each model has slightly different features, though functionality is exactly the same. The map runs the same, the seasons change the same and both include a minute analog 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. Upgrade panels are available on the Original Kilburg model. These upgrades are aside from the seven vinyl finishes available at an entry level price. The upgrades include; Stainless Steel, Powder Coats, Anodized Aluminum and Natural Wood veneers. Boardroom models feature a special "cove molding" on their natural wood front panels.

Two Maps of Geochron

For the first time in the 50 year history, Geochron has introduced a brand new map option. You now have a choice between standard political map that has been the standard barer since Mr Kilburg designed the Geochron and the new topographical map that looks like the earth as it would from space, at no additional cost!

This is the earth as it actually looks from space with the addition of some subtle dimensions to show ocean depths. The topographical map is printed using the same super high quality lithographic printer as the standard political map and includes all of the same time zones and clock features. The topographic map includes country borders but does not include the country names to not clutter this beautiful map. Check out the new map below!

The History of Geochron

The Geochron was invented by James Kilburg with the idea that one device could be used to determine what time it is anywhere in the world.Mr James Kilburg.  Inventor of the Geochron. Kilburg was a mechanical engineer who perfected his craft and knack for ingenuity while living in Luxembourg. After moving to America, Kilburg devoted his life to creating innovations such as the car cigarette lighter, the first automatic dialing telephone, as well as the automated maraschino cherry pitter. The Geochron however was inspired by less practical reasons. In 1962, Mr. Kilburg was overseas visiting relatives in Luxembourg. Unable to make the trip to Europe, his wife Dorothy picked up the phone to call him one day. With some help from the international operator, she got through to California. Unfortunately for her husband, it happened to be 2:00 a.m. This gave Mr. Kilburg all the inspiration he needed to create the world's first accurate global time machine. In 1965, the Geochron was born. After many years in California's bay area, Geochron's factory moved to Portland, Oregon in the summer of 2007 where it continues to manufacture this incredible product.

The Legacy Continues Today

For over 50 years, the Geochron has been used by world renowned business leaders, dignitaries and diplomats and even by those in the White House. Today, the legacy continues. You can still own an original, hand-made of the same exacting standards as originally specified by Jim Kilburg in 1965.
