The planets with their own satellites are revolving around
the sun since the solar system came in existence; but measurement
of time started only a few millenniums ago. At present, it
is measured by a watch which shows the duration taken by earth
to complete one rotation which we have named 24 hours (a day).
A trial has been done to show revolution of earth and moon
in the watch, which is based on the speed of their movement
with the help of gearings which was missing by this time.
This yields so many parameters which are of great importance
to human beings in their day-to-day life.
An attempt is made to convert the present 24 hours time in
metric system for easy and accurate calculations which can
be performed by a calculator, without disturbing the duration
of present time unit i.e. ‘SECOND’. Time measurement
in Ghatis and Palas added.
An opportunity is provided to print solar and lunar calendars
of personal necessity as a whole and marking of required time
meridians on rotating disc, along with provision for using
either of the systems ‘sayana’ or ‘nirayana’.
Utmost care is taken to make the gears of Earth & Moon
revolution according to the approximate time taken by them
across different signs.
Rising sign (rasi) at any time of the day and early/
late sunrise and sunset time are marked at home latitude.
Tilt of Earth, elliptical revolution of earth and seasons
are shown diagrammatically. A digital days recording meter
upto one million days, a day watch and digital room thermometer
By look, the watch seems to be an aerial view from heaven
showing rotation and revolution of earth along with moon in
I hope this will be fruitful and of utmost use to every individual
in all fields of life.
