4.0 out of 5 stars Great clock!, November 1, 2009
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: La Crosse Technology WT-3122A 12 1/2-Inch Wood Atomic Analog Clock (Kitchen)
I was looking for a nice looking clock. I bought two of the La Crosse clocks, the other is similar but silver in color. I didn't care much about the "Atomic" feature, which means that the clock supposedly sets itself automatically to your time zone. I didn't want to pay extra for this feature, but it seems like your can't find a clock these days that isn't "atomic". Anyway, the clock failed to set itself correctly, and I had to manually fix it. Not a big deal, since I had no problem buying a clock that I would have to manually set. I wonder if I would have left it alone for 24 hours, perhaps it would have set itself initially. But I'm not that patient. It did, however, update itself for daylight savings, and I appreciated that since the clocks are hanging in hard to reach places. These clocks are very attractive and appear sturdy with good quality parts. I've only had them for a month, but I am satisfied thus far.

Atomic clocks receive their signal at night...it's not a continuous signal. So, if you don't wait until the next morning, the clock will not adjust automatically to the correct time. Also, it should be noted that Atomic clocks work on different frequencies outside the US. That may be why this customer had a problem.

I did not know this about the clocks setting at night. I wish that the clock would have came with instructions that said that. I live inside the US, so the frequency should not have been a problem.

Also, for about a year, the second hand did not work, but now it is working again. I'm happy that the clock is still functional, despite a few minor glitches.
