When You Lose Track of Time, Day Clock is a Plus

When You Get Away and Relax...

Keeping Track of the Day is a Breeze

On a cruise ship, people tend to get so into the "moment" in relaxing and having fun, they often forget what day it is. Thus, many lines put new carpets in the elevators daily to tell guests it's "Saturday" or "Wednesday."

Photo of Day Clocks goes here.But what if you're out and about in your RV, staying for a lengthy time in a vacation rental, or just kicking back for several weeks in a condo?

Your watch tells the time, but what about the day? A new Day Clock is a handy feature to take along. 

DayClock is an invention born out of the experience of several male retirees who were out dirt sailing for a few days. They were so involved with the experience they lost track of the day. They knew their wives would be arriving on Friday, but they didn't recall what day Friday was, and were too far from civilization to check. Sitting around the campfire one night, they invented the DayClock.

How does it work? The hand (for the day of the week) on a DayClock moves continuously making a complete revolution every 168 hours or once a week. The lines dividing the days indicate midnight and the arrows above the day indicate noon.

DayClocks come in two versions. One is the Classic DayClock, available in oak and mahogany finishes. It retails for $39.95. This clock only has a "day" hand, not hands to show minutes or hours, although you can generally figure that out from the positioning. 

A second version, the Contemporary DayClock depicts both the time of day and the day of the week. That's available in oak and silver finishes. The retail price is $49.95.

DayClock is available for purchase at www.dayclocks.com or at select retailers nationwide
