“Single use forever launch clock.”

Time Since Launch


Sat, May 19th, 2018 11:00 by capnasty NEWS

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.
