A YES watch is probably one of the most versatile timepieces you can wear, when you count the
seemingly endless array of features for each watch. They not only keep regular and military time,
they can tell you at a glance times for local sunrise, sunset, moonrise, moonset, and more! They
even depict phases of the moon right on the dial face.
*With this fine jewelry item, returns for credit will be subject to a 20% restocking fee.
For travelers, select from nearly 600 cities preprogrammed into each watch and for the Inca/Zulu
models, keep an eye on two separate time zones digitally — and up to three time zones using
the 24–hour bezel.
Each watch comes in a beautiful presentation case with full instructions. The Inca/Zulu models
include leather and rubber bands as alternatives to the silver tone titanium bands for each watch.
Plus adjustment tools are included so you can save a trip to the jeweler should you wish to switch
I am proud to offer these beautiful watches to our RichardSolo customers. They make memorable gifts
for someone special in your life — including yourself! — Richard
Thousands of years ago astronomers discovered that, as the night sky passed, 12 distinct star constellations rose above the
horizon line at fairly equal intervals. Timekeepers were soon dividing the day into 12 hours. The 24-hour conscience of
time had seen the light of day. Some called it "Zulu" time.
British sailors recognized the dire need for a fixed time-keeping method to safely navigate the vast oceans and in 1884, at
the Washington conference, the 24-hour GMT system was adopted as the first worldwide time standard. Since the NATO phonetic
alphabet and the amateur radio word for Z is "Zulu", as the zero-point reference, Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) is also
referred to as Zulu time. In 1986 UTC replaced GMT as the world standard. UTC is radio controlled and is based upon atomic
measurements rather than the earth’s rotation that has uniform seconds defined by International Atomic Time (TAI), with
leap seconds announced at irregular intervals to compensate for the earth’s slowing rotation and other discrepancies.
Leap seconds allow UTC to closely track Universal Time (UT), a time standard based not on the uniform passage of seconds, but
on the Earth’s angular rotation.
Time zones around the world are expressed as positive or negative offsets from UTC. Local time is UTC plus the time zone offset
for that location, plus an offset (typically +1) for daylight saving time, if in effect. As the zero-point reference, UTC is also
referred to as Zulu time (Z). This is especially true in aviation, where Zulu is the universal standard. This ensures all pilots
regardless of location are using the same 24-hour clock, thus avoiding confusion when flying between time zones.
To honor the forefathers of time, the YES ZULU embraces all their revelations and is possibly the most comprehensive interpretation
of time that money can buy. It relates both natural and modern time back to that ancient celestial 24-hour cycle. At a glance, you
see times for sunrise and sunset, solar high noon, moonrise and moonset, moon phase, military time and, of course, hours, minutes
and seconds in AM/PM or 2400 time mode, for wherever you are in the world.
True for all YES watches, the ZULU has been programmed for the next century and automatically updates for Day Light Savings Time (DST).
It has been pre-programmed for nearly 600 cities worldwide and can be set by latitude and longitude.
It keeps digital time for 2 locations simultaneously, and has a stopwatch with lap-time, a timer, a countdown and a past and future
date solunar calculator. The 24-hour bezel can be set to keep time for a third timezone.
The ZULU also has a sunrise and sunset alarm which chimes half an hour before and at the event, as well as a regular set alarm with a
10-minute snooze. A back light enables effective readout of time data in the dark.
"I have just returned from a trip to the North Pole (aboard a US Navy nuclear submarine). My YES Zulu watch came in very handy
in helping us determine when would be the best time to surface through the ice so we would have as much daylight as possible...and a
nice full moon if we didn't have daylight."
