Recently been checking the consistency (accuracy) of a newly acquired Aqua Terra Seamaster and am finding a considerable difference between the BBC 'pips' (on DAB), GMT on Google search and the 'clock' on my smartphone.

Which one is 'real'??

DAB is way off; if you can get an analogue signal, the beeps are spot on.

 

Most accurate time is from gps - download a simple gps app to your phone.

 

However, for ease, I use https://time.is/ which is as near perfect as I'll ever need.

 

For longer term timechecks, I use https://toolwatch.io/measures - which seems pretty foolproof.

I have a couple of "radio" clocks that self correct. They used to pick up the time signal from Rugby but I think the transmitter has now moved.

 

Ones a Junghans Mega and the other is a cheap Aldi digital clock cost about £7 - Perfect time and resets automatically when the clocks change.

 

I've also got a GPO electric master clock (pendulum) that sent the signals for the speaking clock.
