UTC-12 Time Zone
Current time in UTC-12 is the last to enter a new year, and is sometimes referred to as the International Date Line West time zone (IDLW).

The UTC-12 time zone is a time offset that subtracts 12 hours from Coordinated Universal Time (UTC).

In the map above we highlight the entire region covered by the UTC-12:00 Time Zone.

Several inhabited territories are within the longitudinal limits of UTC −12 time zone, but none of them maintain the date and time of UTC-12:00.

Instead, they keep the time and date of one of the neighboring zones, usually because they belong, politically, to a country that is mostly in the neighboring time zone.

As seen in the map above, the main territories in the UTC-12 Time Zone are:
  • Baker Island
  • Howland Island
UTC −12 Time Zone is also observed during standard time and daylight saving time for various geographic regions.

You need to be very careful finding time zones that may have different names and abbreviations, but have a UTC −12 offset.

The current time in UTC-12 is the deviation used in other time zones such as:
  • Baker Island Time (BIT)
  • Yankee Time Zone (Y)
  • International Day Line West Time Zone (IDLW)
