This eco friendly moon phase, tide clock and barometer cluster will track both the tide and lunar cycles whilst also providing an indication of the forthcoming weather.

A unique gift idea that’s perfect for anyone living near or far from the coast.

The green eco friendly design has been cleverly made from recycled plastic milk bottles and crushed stone powder. This innovative new material has a lovely solid, heavy feel.

The moon takes 29 days, 12 hours and 44 minutes to phase through its entire cycle. During this time the moon appears to take various shapes as it revolves around the earth and reflects different amounts of sunlight to the viewer.

The Moon’s gravitational pull causes the ocean to bulge in its direction, intensifying the tides. When the Sun and Moon are aligned, these forces are exceptionally strong causing very low and very high tides. These are called Spring Tides although they have nothing to do with the season.

When the Sun and Moon are not aligned during a Quarter Moon, these tides are less intense and are called Neap Tides. During these periods the tides can be up to 20% higher or lower than average.

For our human ancestors the changing moon phase’s signalled when to plant and when to reap. They marked the passing of seasonal cycles, and mysteriously followed the patterns of the mineral, vegetable and animal world.

The quartz driven Tide Hand will rotate every 12 hours and 25 minutes around the fascia, giving you the state of the tide at a glance. This design also provides an indication of how many hours remain until high or low water. The tide clock is only intended as a guide given the variable nature of the tides.

Simply set the hand to the full tide position at exactly high tide for your chosen location and then throw away your tide table.

This ECO design is sourced and manufactured in the UK and made from recycled plastic milk bottles and crushed stone powder.

Designed to be wall mounted, 2 x AA batteries are required (Not included).

Full instructions on how to set up your tide clock are included.
