From sailing to sandcastles, we all need to know what the tide is doing. Designed and manufactured in Cornwall and synchronised to the moons daily cycle, this unique clock provides an innovative and convenient guide to the tides. Once set, the tide clock will give you the state of the tide at a glance -perfect for avoiding soggy feet and wet jeans!
The innovative and convenient clock tracks both the tide and the lunar cycle, ideal for predicting tide times and all important harbour tide heights (neap and spring - see below). As the moon determines the size of the tides, this clock will help you predict how big the tide is likely to be. This eco friendly moon clock tracks the lunar cycle and is ideal for predicting tidal heights, peak gardening times and mood swings!
Made from recycled paper packaging, the material has a very solid, robust slate-like look and feel. Designed to be wall mounted.
Perfect as a unique gift idea for anyone living near the seaside, this clock also comes with chalk and a handy little area to jot down the beach you have chosen.
When the sun and moon are aligned, there are exceptionally strong gravitational forces, causing very high and very low tides which are called spring tides, though they have nothing to do with the season. When the sun and moon are not aligned, the gravitational forces cancel each other out, and the tides are not as dramatically high and low. These are called neap tides.
Full instructions on setting up the clock are included.
