    In addition to me last post... now you have me thinking about its use south of the equator. The clock rotates "CW" as any clock.  No, there is no other clock face on the other side... However, there are settings on the unit for South Lat.   Now, having never used it south of the equator I can't saw if it would work or not.  But given the unit does everything else right I can't see how Plath could have overlooked that detail.   I guess I'll have to now take it south of the equator and set it...
