This Time Since Launch Clock is a grand way to mark any momentous event in your life, such as a wedding, birth of a child, graduation, or the day you launch a new business.
Inspired by the astronaut John Glenn, who started a stopwatch when he launched into space and became the first American to orbit Earth, this Time Since Launch Clock is exquisitely made of precision-machined metals and durable borosilicate glass. Just pull the stainless-steel launch pin at the moment you want to commemorate, and the timer will make it yours forever—or 2,738 years, the length of time the timer counts.
Count up the days from a single moment with this clever time “capsule.” Whether it’s the day you moved into a new home, had a baby, or quit smoking, the time piece makes a truly unique gift for the person whose life is about to change forever. Here’s how it works: Pull the stainless-steel launch pin to initiate the timer, and the instant is burned into a chip, making it yours forever (it actually counts for 2,738 years). Made with precision-machined metals and durable borosilicate glass, it’s assembled in Brooklyn by Che-Wei and Taylor Levy, who were inspired by astronaut John Glenn—he started a stopwatch when he launched into space and became the first American to orbit Earth.
