    Gary, I think there can only be 25 time zones if either the +12 and -12 zones are actually the same 15 deg wide zone at the Int Date Line, or the +12 and -12 zones are separate mini-zones that are 7.5 deg wide. Otherwise 25 * 15 deg = 375 deg! -GeorgeB

    BTW, in spite of everything you have read, there are actually 25 standard time zones not 24!

    The zone descriptions run from +1 to + 12 (12 time zones); -1 to -12 (another 12 time zones); plus the zero time zone (GMT or Zulu time) for a total of 25 time zones. Using the military time zones designations, they run from "A" to "Z" (Alpha to Zulu) omitting only "J" (Juliette.) There are 26 letters in the alphabet, take away "J" and you are left with the same answer, 25 time zones.
