http://www.postgresql.org/docs/8.0/static/datatype-datetime.html

The reference I provided shows Table 8-9 Date/Time Types:

time [ (p) ] with time zone	12 bytes	times of day only, with 
time zone	00:00:00.00+12	23:59:59.99-12	1 microsecond / 14 digits

The low value/high value columns seem to me to indicate the +/-12 zone 
offset range.
