This small radio-controlled watch features Acctim Autoset® technology, which means the watch is pre-set at the factory to the correct time and date. If the radio-controlled signal cannot be received, the Autoset® technology takes over and sets the watch to the correct time until it can be updated automatically again. This watch is tuned to the UK's Atomic Clock transmitter for accurate timekeeping with fully automatic set up and adjustment to seasonal time changes.
Bold black numbers and hands contrast with the clear mother of pearl face, which is complemented by a gold-coloured case and a white artificial leather strap.
With a press of the button the watch announces the time and date in a clear, natural English male voice. It also has a spoken low battery announcement.
