This green eco friendly time and tide clock is synchronised to the moon's daily cycle and provides an innovative and convenient guide to the tides whilst also providing conventional time keeping.
Cleverly made from recycled paper packaging and cast in a unique EcoBind resin, this innovative new material has a lovely solid, heavy, earthy feel, very much like natural slate.
Simply set the hand to the full tide position at exactly high tide for your chosen location and then throw away your tide table.
The quartz driven tide hand will rotate every 12 hours and 25 minutes around the fascia, giving you the state of the tide at a glance. This design also provides an indication of how many hours remain until high or low water. The tide clock is only intended as a guide given the variable nature of the tides.
The conventional clock hands work quite independently from the tide hand and can be adjusted using the small fly wheel on the back of the movement. The tide hand can be adjusted using the larger wheel, again found on the back of the movement.
There are other influences on sea levels that affect exact tide times and the user should take these into account:
-Strong onshore and offshore winds
-Changes in the volume of river flows
-Variations in atmospheric pressure
-The sun's own gravitational pull, when lined up with the moon increases the tidal range, and can alter tide times by up to an hour.
This ECO design is sourced and manufactured in the UK and made from recycled paper and hard resin.
