    Probably an atomic clock, accurate to fractions of a second. In many European countries we have clocks that receive the time by radio from the Atomic clock. I use my radio-controlled clock to set my watches accurately.

    An atomic clock is a very accurate clock. Wikipedia can tell you more about them than I can. Go here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Atomic_clock
