    NIST On My Wrist. One Clock To Rule Them All.

    On my way home from lunch, I stopped for a few photos outside the mecca (IMHO) of horology. I've never noticed that seconds aren't displayed on here. I synced my GW-2310 FB-1 right there on the spot and to my surprise it set two seconds faster than the clock display. Maybe next time I'll inquire within.

    You may have left out something or I'm not smart enough, but I can't figure out what you mean.

    This is where the NIST clock is in Boulder, CO. This all should have been in the first post but my browser and this web site don't always get along.

    So if I understand correctly you are at NIST and looking at their clock which only has a minute display and the minutes change about 2 seconds off from the freshly synced time of your wristwatch.

    If you really want to impress us, take a trip north to Ft. Collins and take a photo there of the WWVB transmitting antennas!!

    My money is on the G-Shock being the more accurate of the two.

    Next time I'm in Ft. Collins, sure. What would impress me though, would be getting inside to see the actual clock itself.
