Walk along beautiful cobblestone streets and shop to your heart’s content on King Street or spend a laid-back afternoon lounging on one of the area’s beautiful beaches. Charleston, South Carolina, is known for its rich history, upscale restaurants, and beautiful architecture, making it a must-see destination for any occasion.

Charleston was founded in 1670 as Charles Town in honor of King Charles II of England and is the oldest city in South Carolina. The city is known as America’s Most Friendly City and features incredible Victorian homes, cobblestone streets, and the first theater in America.

Our nautical tide clock showcases the landscape of Charleston and its surrounding areas. The Charleston Clock is sixteen and a half inches in diameter, including an outline of the island in birch with a recessed layer below the land. The depths of the surrounding water are laser etched into the clock’s face and showcase the topographical lines of the ocean floor. Our artist hand-stained the face of the clock a beautiful greyish-blue color, and landmarks and points of interest are engraved into the wood map to create a picturesque keepsake of the beauty of Charleston.

What is a tide clock and how does it work?  Fun facts: The lunar day is 24 hours and 50 minutes long & the moon is the biggest influence on the tides! Since there are two high tides each lunar day our tide clocks rotate every 12 hours and 25 minutes. Quartz tide clocks are perfect for the more predictable tides of the Eastern United States. You can always set your tide clock by either a quick internet search for high tide in your area for the next high tide, or set it monthly at the full or new moon.

We are map geeks! So naturally we have the most detailed map of Tide Clocks on the market.
