.Beat Swatch® Internet Time Wiki

Right now in your local timezone—GMT+0000 (Coordinated Universal Time)—it's Monday, October 12th 2020 at 5:24 PM.

Translated to Swatch® .Beats time, right now it's 2020-10-12 at precisely:

@766.76

Unlike your local time, its 2020-10-12 @766.76 all over the world right now. There are no confusing time zones ordaylight savings time shifts to worry about.

Instead dividing a day into 24 hours and 60 minutes per hour and 60 seconds per minute, the Internet Time system divides the day into 1000 ".beats". Each .beat is 1 minute and 26.4 seconds.

If you'd like to meet somebody at @766.76 who doesn't know about .Beats yet, you can link them to beats.wiki/766.76 so they can see when @766.76 is in their local time.


If you'd like to know more about , check out the official Swatch Internet Time page and the Wikipedia page for Swatch Internet Time. There's also a podcast about this system that I'm having trouble tracking down. I thought it was by Reply All but I'm not seeing it there. If you find a podcast explaining internet time please lemme know @cgenco.
