"When you own a Geochron, you'll have much more than a timepiece. You'll be in possession of a totally handcrafted, yet functional piece of art. Something that generates not only conversations, but inspiration. The Geochron indicates where the sun is shining at any given moment via al illuminated pattern on the world map. While you may never see the rooms in the White House, Pentagon, or NASA headquarters that use the clock, you may have seen it in movies like the Hunt for Red October and Clear and Present Danger, on TV in The West Wing or JAG. Ronald Regan presented one to Mikhail Gorbachev as "an example of American ingenuity." Boutros-Boutros Ghali accepted one at the United Nations headquarters in New York. Now the time is yours. $1595."
Whew. So, sixteen hundred bucks for an obsolete, glorified weathermap? I'd rather take that sixteen hundred bucks and actually go someplace sunny.
