I have no doubt of that @Anonymous ....problem is the kids of today don't see Casio as cool and trendy

Casio do watches capable radio controlled automatic timesetting. Aimed more at adventurers though.
Leave your candy-colored cans in the toy chest and try a pair of proper headphones.

I use one and now have one in the kitchen, more on how they work:

 

"There are many time reference centres located around the world, each with their own atomic clock. Every clock sold in the UK is programmed to receive a signal from our time reference centre that is located at the NPL (National Physical Laboratory) centre in Anthorn, Cumbria.

The atomic clock at the NPL centre was recently proved to the the most accurate clock in the world; with accuracy of less than 1 second gained or lost every 138 million years."

Well they do pause the time for 2 seconds every New Year at the turn to synchronise the clocks and whatnot due to the eliptical tilt of the Earth so maybe it's something like that. Also it means we don't have satelites crashing into each other.

 

Or could it be because that guy from 1D is stressed...Crazy
