Virgil Winston: Marketing Guru

If you think you’ve had a long week, remember the ancient Aztec week was twenty days long, which not even a three-day weekend could save. Throughout history we have used all types of time-telling devices—sundials, pendulums, candle clocks, hour glasses, calendar clocks, and for the ancient Incas of Peru, even time measured by how long it took to cook a potato, which thousands of years later, has became a little more sophisticated by my own grandfather, who proudly believes he can measure time by his own bowel movements.

Yes, we’ve come a long way, which is why I’d like to introduce you to the Planet-Time Clock. This promotional gift item will stand out on any desk. It makes a stunning gift with the silver tone globe contrasting against the black weighted base…all with a generous sized imprint area for your logo and/or message. Of course, the exciting thing about this clock is this: the globe rotates once per minute advancing the time and the Meridian and Equatorial bands. This is not just a timepiece, but a conversation piece.

There may be thousands of ways to tell time, but how many of them are sleek, powerful and accurate—certainly more reliable than a potato…or a trip to the bathroom.

Well, I’m off to the Opera with my wife, where I predict in three rotations of the globe, I will be fast asleep. Until next time, remember, “There is no time, like the present.”
