Great watch for the lazy but punctual :-),
This review is from: Precision Solar Powered Radio Controlled 2 Tone Watch (Watch)
I love this watch! It is solid and hardwearing. It looks and feel good. And best of all it takes care of itself. The fact it is solar powered means is never needs a battery and when fully charged the battery will run for months even if kept in the dark. The watch looks like a good quality dress watch and you'd never know the solar panels were behind the nice looking white face. The watch also syncs itself with "atomic clock time" at 3am each night (or anytime you press the button and ask it to). It suggests that the watch is put on a widow sill at night to help get a good signal, but I just tend to put it next to the bed and I've never yet had it fail to pick up the signal here or abroad (scrolling through the "date window" will tell you if it picked up the signal the night before or not). The legend of "1 second in 16 million years" is a little misleading as that refers to the atomic clock giving out the signals and not the watch itself. Typically, I've found that the watch will lose around 1 second over 24 hours (before correcting itself at the next update). The accuracy of the watch therefore varies from 100% to 99.9988%; which is incredibly accurate whichever way you look at it. It will also always show the right date and will auto adjust for summer and winter time. A great watch and highly recommended for all those who want to put on the watch, do nothing ever, and know it will always give the right time.
