1997 – 1999 MILLENNIUM COUNTDOWN CLOCK

In April 1997, Accurist started the official countdown to the Millennium by providing the Old Royal Observatory at Greenwich with a satellite controlled clock accurate to within 1/10,000,000th of a second to countdown the last 1,000 days of the 20th century. In 1884 at the International conference in Washington, the meridian line at Greenwich was chosen as the “meridian line for the world” 0 degrees longitude it was decreed that the universal day for the world starts at midnight on the meridian line.

Later in 1997, Accurist moved its Headquarters to London’s West Hampstead district. The custom built facilities created a modern and efficient infrastructure from where Accurist uniquely provided an efficient and co-ordinated service across every facet of its business from product design, and distribution, to after sales service and product assembly.
