Watch
A WATCH is a small timepiece intended to be carried or worn by a person. It is designed to keep working despite the motions caused by the person's activities. A WRISTWATCH is designed to be worn around the wrist , attached by a watch strap or other type of bracelet . A POCKET WATCH is designed for a person to carry in a pocket . Watches evolved in the 17th century from spring-powered clocks, which appeared as early as the 14th century. During most of its history the watch was a mechanical device, driven by clockwork , powered by winding a mainspring , and keeping time with an oscillating balance wheel . In the 1960s the electronic quartz watch was invented, which was powered by a battery and kept time with a vibrating quartz crystal . By the 1980s the quartz watch had taken over most of the market from the mechanical watch. Today most inexpensive and medium-priced watches, used mainly for timekeeping, have quartz movements

Chronograph
A CHRONOGRAPH is a specific type of watch that is used as a stopwatch combined with a display watch. A basic chronograph has an independent sweep second hand; it can be started, stopped, and returned to zero by successive pressure on the stem. Less simple chronographs use additional complications and can have multiple independent hands to measure seconds, minutes, hours and even tenths of a second. In addition, many modern chronographs use moveable bezels as tachymeters for rapid calculations of speed or distance. Louis Moinet invented the chronograph in 1816 for use in tracking astronomical objects. Chronographs were also used heavily in artillery fire in the mid to late 1800s. More modern uses of chronographs involve piloting airplanes, car racing, diving and submarine maneuvering

Solar Power
SOLAR POWER is the conversion of energy from sunlight into electricity , either directly using photovoltaics (PV), indirectly using concentrated solar power , or a combination. Concentrated solar power systems use lenses or mirrors and tracking systems to focus a large area of sunlight into a small beam. Photovoltaic cells convert light into an electric current using the photovoltaic effect . Photovoltaics were initially solely used as a source of electricity for small and medium-sized applications, from the calculator powered by a single solar cell to remote homes powered by an off-grid rooftop PV system. Commercial concentrated solar power plants were first developed in the 1980s. The 392 MW Ivanpah installation is the largest concentrating solar power plant in the world, located in the Mojave Desert of California

Casio Wave Ceptor
CASIO WAVE CEPTOR is a line of radio watches by Casio
Casio
. Wave Ceptor watches are able to set themselves to the correct time by receiving time signals from various government time services around the world. These signals are normally driven directly by ultra-accurate atomic clocks , and so by synchronizing with the signals, the Wave Ceptor watches achieve extremely high accuracy – nearly the same accuracy as the atomic clocks that drive the time signals, which is on the order of one second in three million years. The time setting signals usually come from radio emitting towers. Radio-controlled watches, require no setting or resetting of time, date, daylight saving time , or year; and like most other watches of this kind, they attempt automatic synchronization at least once every 24 hours, usually in the middle of the night. Their long-term and short-term accuracy is thus better than 500 ms

Radio Clock
A RADIO CLOCK or RADIO-CONTROL LED
LED
CLOCK (RCC) is a clock that is automatically synchronized by a time code transmitted by a radio transmitter connected to a time standard such as an atomic clock . Such a clock may be synchronized to the time sent by a single transmitter, such as many national or regional time transmitters, or may use multiple transmitters, like the Global Positioning System . Such systems may be used to automatically set clocks or for any purpose where accurate time is needed. One common style of radio-controlled clock uses time signals transmitted by dedicated terrestrial longwave radio transmitters, which emit a time code that can be demodulated and displayed by the radio controlled clock. The radio controlled clock will contain an accurate time base oscillator to maintain timekeeping if the radio signal is momentarily unavailable

Atomic Clock
An ATOMIC CLOCK is a clock device that uses an electron transition frequency in the microwave , optical , or ultraviolet region of the electromagnetic spectrum of atoms as a frequency standard for its timekeeping element. Atomic clocks are the most accurate time and frequency standards known, and are used as primary standards for international time distribution services , to control the wave frequency of television broadcasts, and in global navigation satellite systems such as GPS
GPS
. The principle of operation of an atomic clock is based on atomic physics ; it uses the microwave signal that electrons in atoms emit when they change energy levels . Early atomic clocks were based on masers at room temperature. Currently, the most accurate atomic clocks first cool the atoms to near absolute zero temperature by slowing them with lasers and probing them in atomic fountains in a microwave-filled cavity

Radio
RADIO is the technology of using radio waves to carry information, such as sound, by systematically modulating properties of electromagnetic energy waves transmitted through space, such as their amplitude , frequency , phase , or pulse width . When radio waves strike an electrical conductor , the oscillating fields induce an alternating current in the conductor. The information in the waves can be extracted and transformed back into its original form. Radio
Radio
systems need a transmitter to modulate (change) some property of the energy produced to impress a signal on it, for example using amplitude modulation or angle modulation (which can be frequency modulation or phase modulation ). Radio
Radio
systems also need an antenna to convert electric currents into radio waves , and radio waves into an electric current. An antenna can be used for both transmitting and receiving
