    I sync to the clock in my boss's office.

    My Oregon Scientific indoor/outdoor thermometer syncs to atomic clock signals by radio and sits on top of my PC.

    Mine is a Casio G-shock Solar powered wave ceptor. Automatically syncs to the atomic clock every morning at 2 am. Automatically sets for day light savings time.

    I've also got a Casio G-Shock that syncs with the atomic clock every night. It's accurate to the second every day. It's also solar, so no batteries to change, no winding etc... Also, not having to change batteries saves the waterproof seal as well :) I dig this watch

    I always did this too. So did most of my fellow workers. Telling the boss his time clock was wrong never worked when you were late for work.

    I have really come to love the totally maintenance free watch. I never set it, I never change a battery. It's made me a very lazy watch owner!

    I have one of those radio syncing clocks too. It has the old daylight savings dates in it so it is wrong a few weeks out of the year. You can reset it, but every night it "corrects" itself. It is a real pain in the arse.

    Down with daylight savings!

    Actually all of the above... I have the Casio solar time zone, and for a bit dressier ?? look, I have a gold atomic sync watch, and two wall clocks with atomic time that syncs twice a day, and I use Dimension 4 for my computer clock. Every half hour it checks one of 200 atomic clocks around the world and sets your PC clock to a ten thousandth of a second.... I was worried I was getting too anal about it, then thought HAY... how am I going to keep all 26 of my wrist watches Zulu-ed up if I don't have good data !!

    We have an atomic clock in the kitchen that I use to set stuff to. It's supposed to radio sync every hour.

    My smart phone also keeps itself updated, so no worries there. When I had a cheap phone, it would get behind every time the battery got low. Pretty annoying. I always wondered if phones could use cell phone towers, wifi, and gps satellites, why not the atomic signal as well??? Guess they finally figured out something that works. Took em a while.

    I use the Naval Observatory as well. Cell phone as an absolute last-ditch backup. I'm paid to be on time and on target. :)
