Seiko world time clocks use Global R-Wave technology to pick up the atomic time signal broadcast from Fort Collins, Colorado. With the help of the atomic time signal, your Seiko world clock allows you to view the time in 47 different locations around the world by selecting the desired location on the clock's touch sensor screen. Despite all of its impressive features, the Seiko world clock is a user-friendly timepiece that is simple to set.
