My nearly-20-year-old Sony "Dream Machine" bedside clock-radio automatically syncs its clock to the radio RDS time-signal. Which is kinda handy given that its internal timekeeping battery-backup has long since ceased to back-up and we get lots of mains power-outages here.

[Strangely, power-outages don't cause the radio's presets to lose their presettedness though!]
