There are many tools available for those working or socializing across multiple time zones but one of the most elegant has to be Clocks from Studio Dalton.

Clocks is a Mac App that sits neatly in the menu bar with a configurable menu bar display and the ability to add numerous time zones to a fly out panel.

Clocks from Studio Dalton

Adding the clocks couldn’t be easier as you can search by time zone or by location and then add the destination to your list. The locations/time zones selected can be renamed as required, hence the MacBites HQ entry in the image. Surprisingly MacBites HQ isn’t an officially recognized time zone yet … but we’re working on it! 😉

As you can see there is a digital clock next to each clock face which can display as 12 hours or 24 hours and a relative day. I find the relative day option incredibly useful.

There are options to start at login and activate via a keyboard shortcut for mouse-less operation.

My favourite feature is one only recently added and that is a slider under the clock display that allows you to scroll time forwards and backwards on all the clocks. Brilliant feature for scheduling meetings within a known range of time zones. The animation that returns the clocks to the current time when you close the time difference indicator never ceases to bring a smile to my face.

If you have a need to use multiple time zones you won’t go far wrong with Clocks for only £1.49 from the Mac App Store.
