Clocks for all Time Zones in the World - with accurate Daylight Saving
Select a preconfigured design from the visual gallery and tweak it as you like!
Change fonts, hands, colors, borders, markers, date window, numerals, country flags and more.
Clocks can be styled as a group or individually and are losslessly resizable.
You can "dim" clocks that are outside of a specific time span (either an editable office time or the day time).
Analog or Digital Time on your Desktop
There is no loss in visual quality when you resize the clocks, they can be tiny or huge and anything in between!
Clocks can be in analog or digital mode. Country flags and borders are optional.
Modify background (solid color, linear or radial color gradient or background image), fonts, borders, date/time format.
Time Converter and Meeting Planner
The integrated Time Zone Converter can easily convert the time from one time zone to another.
Daylight Saving is taken into account precisely, thanks to the most accurate and up-to-date IANA time zone database.
The Meeting Planner makes arranging meetings across multiple time zones a snap.
Alarms and Timers for Local Time or any Time in the World
Set alarms and count-down alarms in the sophisticated Alarm Center
Slide-in notifications can have different colors
Single Alarms - show a reminder on any given date and time, local time or the time in any city
Daily Alarms - repeat an alarm each day at a given time or only on selected weekdays
Annual Alarms - show an alarm on a certain date each year (plus warning 1..10 days before)
Count-Down Alarms - set a timespan (hours and minutes, up to 100 hours)
Chimes - hear a sound signal or hear spoken time
Optionally play a sound file (WAV, MP3, WMA, once or looped) or speak the alarm message
Time Tool for Companies and Traders
You can easily distinguish cities within and outside a certain time span ("office hours", the default is 8 AM - 5 PM) by dimming clocks outside that time span.
This is adjustable from 0% to 90%. Instead of office hours you can also select the daylight hours (between sunrise and sunset).

Size and Design
The size of the clocks in Sharp World Clock can be changed from tiny to huge - without loss of visual quality! All graphics are rendered vector based and hardware accelerated, using the most advanced and modern WPF technique.
Margins and Columns
In Sharp World Clock the clocks can be arranged any way you like - as a horizontal line or a vertical row and any type of grid. The distance between the clocks is changed with the "Margin" slider in the settings dialog.
Adding new clocks is easy: just select "Add" from the menu in one of the clocks - a new clock is added to the clock array - click the "Select City" button and set the new city
You can undock clocks from the main window and place them anywhere on the desktop. After undockung, they can be docked again. This is just one of the many magic features of Sharp World Clock.
Modify Design and Time Format
There are currently 13 variations of hour/minute hands and 10 variations for second hands available.
There are 6 numeral variations: 4/6/12 positions upright, 12 positions rotated, 4/12 roman numerals.
24 Hour Clock
The last clock features the 24 hour mode, where the hour hand makes a full rotation in 24 instead of 12 hours.
Clocks for every Time Zone and every major City in the World
The included city database contains every city with a population of 15,000+ and every capital city.
Even an array of 21 world clocks is no problem for Sharp World Clock, it can easily handle that and many more!
And although the clocks in the picture all use the same design, this is not required.
After assigning a general design template to all clocks, you can make changes to some clocks and make them look differently:
Instead of cities you can select UTC/GMT or military time zones for clocks - just select "Time Zones" for the continent.
