Use this unique clock to keep Byzantine Time, the canonical timekeeping method of ancient Christianity. With a 24-hour timepiece, the hour hand goes around once per day.
The hour hand tracks the nominal position of the sun: at noon (the 6th hour of the day), it points straight up; at midnight (the 6th hour of the night), it points straight down. The attractive clock face makes it easy to calibrate and keep track of the canonical time:
- First Hour/Prime (7:00 AM)
- Third Hour/Terce (9:00 AM)
- Sixth Hour/Sext (noon)
- Ninth Hour/None (3:00 PM)
This is helpful in tracking the liturgical day, and especially in reading the hours of the divine office.
