Based on a lunar day of 24 hours and 50 minutes, our tide clocks operate on a semidiurnal tide basis (most commonly associated with the U.S. East Coast), which have two high tides and two low tides of about the same height each tidal lunar day. Our tide clocks count down the number of hours until the next high semidiurnal or low tide. Unlike some tide clocks, our tide clocks include the extra tick mark in the 6th hour needed to approximate a 25 hour tidal lunar day. Because there are many variable factors that can affect the tides including location and weather, our tide clocks are not described, promoted or intended to be used as “accurate instruments”. Rather, once properly set these decorative tide clocks can approximate some useful information about the tides.
Our Time & Tide clocks come with hour, minute and second hands as well as a tide indicator and a built in hanger for mounting. BeachClocks are Designed, Printed and Assembled in the USA.
