Wouldn't this set the clock forward/back an hour and five minutes, instead of just an hour?

Cheap, easy, effective. I love it! Now I just need a guide for my slow brain on how to line up which time zone. xD

This was originally done by Charlotte Van Der Waals.

Here's my own version of it.

Except that this has been made by almost any first-grade schoolchild in the netherlands during geography lessons to learn about timezones. Perhaps even Charlotte has learned about it there, the name sounds Dutch.

Hm... it strikes me that you could put a weight behind the original faceplate at 6 o'clock, and mount it so it freely rotates. Cool idea though!

Even better - cut a slot at the top of weighted faceplate, and mount it in front of a second faceplate with names of cities or countries, as in fungus's version.

That way, when you rotate the clock, only the correct city shows, and you get a numbered faceplate.

I think it's important to point out too that you removed the Minute hand, as rotating it 30 deg to move forward/backward the hour would also move forward/backward the time by 10 minutes. Good show old boy, good show.

Well done. I am a Canadian living in the Uk, and am always making international calls (I'm always counting on my fingers to find out the time differences) I will have to make on of these. Good job.
