Highlights•We present high-precision zircon U–Pb dates for astronomically dated ash beds.•Detailed inter-comparison of two entirely independent geochronometers.•Insights into U–Pb systematics of igneous zircon.•Recognition of non-systematic bias between zircon U–Pb and astrochronology.•Important implications for U–Pb geochronology as a tool for time scale calibration.
