The Hammacher Schlemmer projection clock is a radio-controlled atomic clock that projects the time and temperature onto a nearby wall or ceiling. To ensure that your Hammacher Schlemmer projection alarm clock always displays the most accurate time possible, your clock receives an atomic time signal that is broadcast from a military base in Fort Collins, Colorado. Before your projection alarm clock can receive the correct time signal, you must set it to the appropriate time zone for your area.
