Thousands of years ago Babylonian astronomers discovered that, as the night sky passed, 12 distinct star
constellations rose above the horizon line at fairly equal intervals. We know it as the Zodiac with the twelve Signs.
When to meet Anata under the starry sky could now be carefully planned, unless of course the fog rolled in.
Why not divide the day into 12 hours as well? Their glassblowing skills were first rate, and soon the
hour glass business flourished. The accuracy could have been so-so, but the 24 hour conscience of time had seen
the light of day.
Centuries ago, British sailors recognized the dire need for a fixed time
keeping method to safely navigate the vast oceans, and in 1884, at the
Washington conference, the 24 hour GMT system was adopted as the first
worldwide time standard. Some called it Zulu time. In 1986 UTC replaced GMT
as the world standard. UTC is radio controlled and is based on atomic
measurements rather than the earth's rotation.
To honor the forefathers of time, the YES ZULU embraces all their revelations and is possibly the most
comprehensive interpretation of time that money can buy. It relates both natural and modern time back to that
ancient celestial 24 hour cycle. At a glance, you see times for sunrise and sunset, solar high noon, moonrise and
moonset, moon phase, military time and, of course, hours, minutes and seconds in AM/PM or 2400 time mode, for
wherever you are in the world.
