A stylish timepiece with high-tech functionality, this La Crosse atomic clock keeps correct time all the time and makes a great gift for the person who has everything. The small, radio-controlled clock is calibrated daily to the atomic time standard of the NIST and displays the hour, minute and second, along with the month, date, year and day. Also displays the moon phase and the current indoor temperature (°F or °C), as well as outdoor temp (°F or °C) via an included remote transmitter. Features a handsome oak frame, time alarm with snooze, day-of-week display in English, French or Spanish, dual LCD screens, 12 or 24 hr. mode, time zones from GMT to -12 GMT and 3-letter identification for US time zones. Includes clock, removable fold-out stand and one TX6U transmitter. Wall hanging or freestanding. 8Hx12-1/5Lx1-1/5W.
When is a clock not just a clock? When it provides so much more than just the time: temperature, phase of the moon, and accuracy within one second per year, for example. This handsome wall clock, with its dual LCD screens and black-accented oak finish, is an example of household life being enhanced by science. The WS-8117U can hang on the wall or stand freely, with a built-in, fold-out stand. Radio-controlled time (to the hour, minute, and second) and date are prominently displayed, along with indoor and outdoor temperatures measured in either Fahrenheit or Celsius. The day of the week can be displayed in English, French, Spanish or German.
Time can be displayed in 12- or 24-hour modes, and time zones from Greenwich Mean Time to -12 GMT can be selected, with three-letter identifications for US time zones. An alarm feature is useful as a timer, and, if the clock happens to hang or stand near a bed (or a couch that's used for napping), a snooze feature allows for gradual wake-up. Moon phase shows in twelve increments, from new moon, through gibbous and crescent phases (waxing and waning), to quarter and finally full moon.
The clock comes with La Crosse transmitter TX37U-IT. Clock and transmitter each operate on two AA batteries. For options in wall mounting, three screws and screw anchors and a strong adhesive tape are included. The WS-8117U measures 12-1/4 by 8 by 1-1/4 inches. La Crosse provides a one-year limited warranty on its clocks. Each clock comes with a thoroughly detailed instruction booklet. --Garland Withers
