THE THINKGEEK EPOCH CLOCK

THE THINKGEEK EPOCH CLOCK
The ThinkGeek Epoch Clock
This unique timepiece was designed and built entirely by ThinkGeek. We think it’s the perfect way
for you to show your love of numbers as well as your mad geek skills, effortlessly reading the time as others
gaze at the clock perplexed. We hope you find as much enjoyment in owning this clock as we did in creating it.
As an original ThinkGeek product, our clock is tailored to the smart masses. The ThinkGeek Epoch Clock displays the time
in six different ways - Epoch Time is displayed in the lower left corner while the center display can show the time in your choice
of Standard, Hexadecimal, Octal, Binary or in Roman Numerals.

or on/off.
HOW TO SET THE CLOCK:
For accuracy of the seconds: Disconnect any power source from
clock. Connect a power source the moment a minute ends.
Something to remember: If after pressing the Set button you see
no flashing characters: press the Up and Down buttons. Possibly
the Date or Epoch display will appear. If not, it’s possible the clock
is at an AM time and in 24 hour display mode. There is no 24 hour
mode status indication.
To set the clock: Press the Set button once and the Year will begin
to flash. Use the Up and Down buttons to set the Year. Press the
Set button again and the Month will flash. Use the Up and Down
buttons to set the Month. Continue to press the Set button and
use the Up and Down buttons to set the other fields. You will also
have to set your time zone. For example, the east coast of the
U.S. Standard time zone is UTC-5 and for Daylight Saving Time
is UTC-4. After setting time zone, press Set button and
the Date display will flash. Use the Up or Down button to turn the
Date display on or off. Press Set button again and the entire Epoch
display will flash. Use the Up or Down button to turn the Date
display on or off. The cycle for setting the clock is: Year > Month
> Day > Hour > Minute > AM/PM or 24-hour > UTC (time zone) >
Date display on/off > Epoch display on/off.
For Daylight Savings Time: Set the clock 1 hour forward or 1 hour
back. You must also change your time zone. For example, on the
east coast of the U.S. the time zone will be UTC-4 during Daylight
Savings Time (beginning in the Spring season).
To set the Alarm: Move the slide switch on the rear of the
clock to the “Set” position. Use the Up and Down buttons to set
the alarm wake-up time. Then move the slide switch to the “On”
position to activate it. Move to the “Off” position to cancel
the alarm.
