Cheap accurate GMT time for your shack! :-)  Time owned: 0 to 3 months
I like "atomic" clocks, ones that automatically set themselves by WWVB or other time standard. I've had trouble finding one I liked, that would display GMT time for in my ham shack. Moreso for one I could put in the car, for HF mobile logging.

I just bought the WV-58A watch from an online supplier for $27; this does exactly what I want. In 'world time mode,' it displays local time in a small window, and the chosen world time (GMT for me!) in a big window. It's solar powered, no battery needed, it is accurate, and it was cheap--what's not to like? Now I've got accurate GMT time in my car, so I can log without checking my wristwatch and doing a mental conversion. I've taken the strap off mine and have it stuck to a handy spot on the dash with coax-seal. :-)
