A Global Time Peace.
The hand movement comes from Switzerland, the sapphire crystal from Germany and the chip is from Japan. The solar and lunar calculations are based on formulas from the US Navy and Meeus's algorithms. The PET countdown function comes from NASA. The programming is done out of Hong Kong with case and assembly completed in China.
Inspired by tribal shamans, ancestral astronomers, British chronologists and Swiss watch- makers, YES™ is headquartered in California, USA with a Viking at the helm.
YES™ is truly an international time watch, a symbol for one world.
