1) Movement of the Basic Indicator needle ‘B’

When needle B moves through 1mm, the Earth’s Equator moves 40075 km ¸ 100 = 400.75 km When ‘B’ moves 5 mm the Earth’s Equator moves 5x 400.75 =2003.75 km = 1Basic and when B moves 100mm the Earth’s Equator moves through 100 x 400.75 = 40075 Km = 1Length  (L)

2) Movement of the Range indicator needle ‘R’

When ‘B’ moves 5 mm, ‘R’ moves 100mm. The Earth’s Equator Moves 2003.75  km When R moves 1mm Earth’s Equator moves  2003.75 ¸ 100  = 20.0375 km.

3) Movement of the Portion Indicator needle ‘ P’

When ‘R’ moves 1mm ‘P’ moves 100mm. The Earth’s Equator moves 20.0375 km. When ‘P’ moves 1mm, the Earth’s Equator moves 20.0375 ¸ 100 = 0.200375 km. Converting from Km to Meters, we have 0.200375 x 1000 = 200.375 meters or 1 Acim and   40075 km  ¸ 0.200375 = 200,000 Acikm

Note: 7 The advantage of a Distance Piece having 100 Portions and 100 Ranges is that it is according to the metric System. Further 20 Basics, which represent 1L half night and half day,  each being 10 of the metric System. This dial of about 32 mm would not be too big or small to be tied on the wrist of a lady or a gentle man’s arm.

How Distance caused Time

1(a)      Earth’s Equatorial Circumferential DISTANCE i.e.   EECD = 40,075 Km

When this DISTANCE in Km travels or we can say that the EECD revolves in front of the Sun. One complete revolution would cause one Sunrise to another Sunrise. This would cause 24 Hours* on Earth.

That is EECD  = 40,075 Km DISTANCE causes 24 hours, and it can be expressed as -

EECD x 1 Km = 40,075 DISTANCE in Km causes 24 hours* (one day and one night i.e. part light & part Darkness) see Figure 1.

(EECD x 1 Km)  ¸  2  = 20037.5 DISTANCE in Km cause half a day or 12 hours* (either a day or night assuming that the days and nights are of equal lengths).

[(EECD x 1 Km) ¸  (2)]  ¸ 12 = 1669.791667 DISTANCE in Km causes 1 hour.*

[(EECD x 1 Km) ¸  (2 x 12)] ¸ 60 = 27.82986 DISTANCE in Km causes 1 Minute * and finally [(EECD x 1 Km) ¸  (2 x 12 x 60)]  ¸ 60 = 0.463831 DISTANCE in Km causes one second.* So we see that DISTANCE cause days - half days * - hours* - minutes* and seconds*
