World Timers as Promotional Items

Aug 16, 2008
A timer, of course, is simply a device that measures a specific amount of time. It can be a closed-ended measurement, such as timing something for ten minutes, or an open-ended measurement, such as measuring how long something will last. There are almost as many kinds of timers available as there are watches and clocks, which themselves can be used as timers. A world timer, on the other hand, is slightly different. It may serve the same functions, but it also includes a function that will tell you what time it is anywhere in the world. This is very useful for business people who have dealings with people in other countries, or for those who simply wish to communicate with friends in other countries but do not want to disturb them at inappropriate hours.

High Quality Promotional Gifts

Most promotional companies make world timers or world clocks a single feature in a multi-featured gift. The nicest of these gifts are large, silver-plated, and come with a calculator, clock, calendar, pen and extra batteries in addition to the world time function. They come in an elegant gift box, and have your company name printed in a visible location right on the front. These high quality gifts will look stunning on a client's desk and quickly prove to be one of the most useful things they own.

Other World Timers

Other world timers show the time in different cities in relation one another. The cities or time zones are listed in circles around the perimeter of the timer, and you can see how many hours separate each one. These are very attractive instruments and add a classy touch to your client's desk. Your company's name and loco can be engraved on the base of this timer so that your client doesn't forget who has provided this helpful piece of equipment.

Other world timers include travel alarms, which are perfect for business travelers who many find themselves in different time zones at different times. It's easy to become confused about what time it is and when you are expected to be at meetings or events, so a traveling world timer can help your client keep track of where and when they are. It will also remind them of the time back in their home time zone, so calls to home or to the office can be scheduled for the appropriate time. These traveling world timers come in chrome or plastic, with and without alarms clocks, and with and without other features such as calculators, pens, and calendars. They can be mounted on a desk, slide into a suitcase, or be magnetically attached to a phone, refrigerator, or other visible surface.

For those who have business in other countries, a world timer is an indispensable piece of equipment. Your company can provide these items to your valued customers, making their business dealings easier and keeping your name and logo in their view at all times.
