The clock in my car (optionally) takes the time from DCF77, a radio station controlled by PTB. Thus, exact time all year round incl. DST - works like a charm. 8-)

Great Idea!
Just add wheels and an antenna to the DM42 and problem solved... :lol:

Surely that would just begin a long, tedious discussion about the accuracy of the odometer though?

Crunching numbers... DM42.
Keeping Time... Omega Speedmaster.
Smart people debating the accuracy of a CRYSTAL 32.768kHz, ±20ppm (40ppm variation) IC... PRICELESS!
