The time in Atomic Watches is set every day by radio signals. The U.S. Government operates an Atomic Clock in Boulder, CO. This Atomic Clock will not gain or lose a second in 60 million years. The NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology) delivers this time to the International Bureau of Weights and Measures in Paris. The Bureau receives time scales from other nations, averages the time scales, and distributes this average. The NIST uses this average and distributes it via radio signals (including WWVB) to your Atomic Watch which is programmed to receive. This radio signal allows your watch to match the Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) exactly and adjust for your time zone. An atomic watch is handy because it automatically adjusts for Daylight Saving Time (DST, leap years and even leap seconds. It contains an internal antenna and program that is set to search once a day for the 60 Hz radio signal emitted from the WWVB transmitter in Ft. Collins. When it finds the signal it decodes the time then sets itself. The Ft. Collins transmitter has a radius of 1864 miles (3000km), making it available to the most of the United States with the exception of Hawaii and Alaska. An atomic watch has a different mode setting for each time zone. When the watch receives the radio signal from the atomic clock, it also reads its internal program that stores the time zone setting. It then translates the atomic time to the proper time zone. Therefore if you travel to another time zone you will have to manually change the time zone setting of the watch. (For the atomic watch to know the time zone automatically, it would require integrated GPS.) Atomic watches have a feature that allows you to see when it was last synchronized. You can also manually tell it to search for the radio signal; otherwise the watch is programmed to look for the signal in the middle of the night when radio interference is at a minimum.
