A Good Clock
on December 27, 2009
I bought this clock because my previous radio controlled clock of another make had broken down.
This clock is used in the kitchen and looks nice. The depth of the rim of the clock was deeper than I had been expecting and that took a little while to get used to.
I love radio controlled clocks because I love having the absolute exact time on all the time displaying items in the house e.g., the DVR, the microwave and the kitchen clock. Two minutes disparity between devices annoys me.
I have had the clock for six months and it has been very good. It has set itself to the correct time and remained there.
One very nice feature is that the second hand does not make the clock tick audibly. It has always bothered me that quartz clocks tick. I had thought ticking would vanish with mechanical time keeping devices and was disappointed when that turned out to be wrong.
I looked and looked, reading and rereading reviews for days, before purchasing this brand and this model. It seems that every model of radio controlled clock gets at least some bad reviews. Apparently, this sometimes has to do with radio reception. My experience with this clock has been good and I would buy it again.
