The solar time as World Clock
Historically, the exact time was defined with the use of sundials. A time corresponding to one day of 1/24, a 1/24 of the time between two passages of the Sun at the zenith. But this World Clock to calculate a universal time was incorrect because the Earth's rotation period varies slightly over the years.
Exact time with time zones
A time zone is an area of the globe where the legal time is the same everywhere. The initial idea is to divide the Earth into 24 time zones of the same size. The first zone is centered on the Greenwich meridian of longitude 0. When someone moves from one time zone to another, the local time is increasing (from west to east) or decrease (from east to west ) for one hour.
Atomic time, accurate and local time
