The World’s Least Accurate Clock

The World’s Least Accurate Clock
Originally uploaded by JoshB.

A stopped clock is right at least twice a day. This atomic clock that I bought for cheap on Amazon changes randomly from day to day. Sometimes it’s right on. Sometimes it’s 20-30 minutes behind for a day. Sometimes it’s exactly an hour behind for a day. It drives my wife crazy, and I’ve been told that if I want to preserve domestic harmony, I must replace this clock. Should I try to get a better atomic clock, or just get a regular one?

Snapped this photo showing my MSN Direct SPOT watch, which is also set to the atomic clock, to show the time discrepancy.

    Casio now makes their GShock line with:

    1. Metal body and band.
    2. Solar powered.
    3. Sets itself each night at midnight to an atomic clock – you must be in the continental US to receive the signal.

    I’ve got one, and I _love_ it. It’s a bit thick as watches go, but if you’re a big guy it won’t be a problem.
