MOUSEOVER for A TIP



WORLD TIME
POINT or CLICK THE CURSOR TO CHECK THE TIME ANYWHERE....

but, IS IT THE EXACT TIME ?

CLICK HERE to see the OFFICIAL TIME in the US
(in any time zone) which is being constantly & accurately updated.
Hopefully you do know the time differential....
TIP: Indian Standard Time is 10 hrs 30 min ahead of US Eastern Time (New York, Boston, Washington DC), or 13 hrs 30 minutes before the Pacific Time (Los Angeles, San Fransisco CA),
but becomes ONE HOUR LESS during the period when Daylight Saving Time (DST) applies.
DST in 2012 is from 11 Mar to 4 Nov; Next for 2013: 10 Mar to 3 Nov; or during 2014: Mar 9 to Nov 2; & in 2015: Mar 8 to Nov 1st.
(DST begins at 2 a.m. on Second Sunday of March, and ends at 2 a.m. local time of first Sunday in November - in USA, Canada & Mexico).
You may then VERY ACCURATELY ADJUST (correct to the nearest second!) YOUR OWN WATCH....
