We live on the Massachusetts coast, and the clock works well. Kids enjoy checking it through the day (us too).


Great idea

I purchased this for a recently purchased beach home. Set up was very easy and this has been a hit with family and guests. It has a useful function and blends well with beach decor. Friends plan to add one to their home.More > < Less

Great for planning kayak outings. Now I know how many hrs of high tide I have in order to be able to get onto the dock on my way back home.

About Tidepieces

Ocean Views

Keeping track of the tide is a simple way to stay connected to the ocean. Sailors monitor the tidal cycle for navigational purposes, anglers often determine the best fishing times by the tide, and many beach lovers like to follow the ebb and flow of the ocean, even when they’re not beachcombing.

Alan Winick lives by the tide, but he was underwhelmed by existing tidal clocks. He’s an avid diver, boater and inventor (he even developed his own one-man submarine), so he turned his creativity to tidal clocks and started making his own in his Westport, CT, workshop.

Alan’s designs combine the mechanisms for tracking the tide with a moving display. His marine scenes change along with the real world’s water levels. A sandcastle is swept away as the tide rises, and it returns as the water recedes, for example. In another scene, a fisherman lures a big catch—which the receding tide reveals to be a mermaid.

It’s important to be aware that tide intervals change based on the position of the moon and the sun, and the accuracy of Alan’s Tidepieces will vary depending on the body of water you’re tracking. Tide phases are most regular on the East Coast of the U.S., so the clocks are most in synch with the Atlantic cycles. West Coast tide watchers will have to adjust the tide setting more frequently to keep the display accurate.

Tidepieces make a great gift for boaters, anglers, beachcombers and anyone who enjoys staying in tune with the tides. They’ll give any room an ocean view.
