Designed to last well over 2,000 years, the Time Since Launch is a single-use digital clock that, once started, won't stop. Just pull the pin and watch time tick by albeit you'll probably have to change the batteries in twenty years. It was inspired by astronaut John Glenn's 12-hour stopwatch used for Mission Elapsed Time (MET).
Use this very long-scale timepiece to mark the beginning of your epoch. It could begin when you get married, have a baby, quit smoking, launch a rocket, or on an ordinary Tuesday morning.
Your epoch is safeguarded within this unique timepiece designed and over-engineered to outlive you. Suspended in a durable borosilicate glass tube and sealed with gasketed aluminum end-caps, two LCDs show days, hours, minutes and seconds since launch. This timepiece is built to count for 2,738 years.
