Compliance Question of the Week

What is a polar clock?

Polar clocks are an intriguing way of visualizing time. The passage of time is shown in a series of shrinking concentric circles. Each division of time is represented as a separate circle, with different circles used to represent months, calendar days, the day of the week, hours and minutes.

Polar clocks may be used to represent the current time or even used as countdown clocks.

The Northwest Credit Union Association (NWCUA) used a polar clock as part of the logo for the 2012 Convention and Annual Business Meeting. To see what a polar clock looks like, check out the Association’s dedicated Convention website.
