Breakthrough new Era in Chronometry
As we travel through the depths of space around the sun on our rotating planet Earth, it gives rise to our concept of time.
At this very moment, we are travelling around the sun at a speed of more than 107.000 kilometers per hour while our planet Earth
revolves 365 times around its axis during a single orbit of our star - which is known as a year.
And the time that elapses during one complete revolution of the Earth around itself is known as a day.
The Nobel laureates Jeffrey C. Hall, Michael Rosbash and Michael W. Young provided the proof that “life on Earth is adapted to the rotation of our planet Earth”.
Thus it appears that space and time are not just relative to oneanother, they are intrinsically woven.
To transform the concept of time into a perceptible form, timepieces as we know them today constitute one standard unit - such as the second - by observing a certain number of repetitions of one or another standard cyclical event inside their clockworks.
Timepieces such as watches and clocks count artificially generated, repetitive cyclic events in their own clockworks in order to simulate the day length of an approximately 24 hour duration that elapses during a single rotation of the Earth around itself,
completing the same number of constant oscillations in each second, in each hour, in each day - the clock runs at a constant rate and cannot follow the actual sun and
determine and display time in a two-dimensional format.
Timepieces, as we know them today, are following an imaginary “mean sun” and this “mean solar time” is determined artificially and displayed on present chronometers.
ITEM – A 4.6 billion-year-old clockwork
The new breakthrough era in Chronometry is ITEM. ITEM is an unprecedented high technology object for the determination of time.
In contrast to timepieces as we know them today ITEM determines and displays time as an exact picture of how the Earth is rotating around its axis continuously and autonomously in 3-dimensional space, ITEM is invented and developed to perceive time from where it originates - in a 3-dimensional format - for the first time in history and ITEM determines and displays the “real solar time” and the “mean solar time” - thus, space and time are intrinsically woven.
Its unique character is founded on an unusual synergy: A 4.6 billion-year-old clockwork employing most innovative and most exclusive new-millennium technologies to measure time.
ITEM’s appearance boldly pushes the envelope past conventional conception and time presentation. ITEM is an exclusive creation and made bespoke for each customer. Extremely rare technologies from the field of aerospace and special research areas of science are used in its creation. These technologies are highly restricted in their accessibility due to their complexity, sensibility and confidentiality.
In ITEM, phenomena of nature and physical laws are transferred into a dimension which can be perceived by humans.
