Default Re: Clock-watch-time problems anyone?

Lets keep in mind that if your clock is a Quartz Clock, the following is the case.....

"A quartz clock is a clock that uses an electronic oscillator that is regulated by a quartz crystal to keep time. This crystal oscillator creates a signal with very precise frequency..."

The quartz crystal is cut and tuned to resonate at a certain frequency, so it is logical that if the vibrational frequency of everything around us, or even us for that matter is changing in a strong enough way, that this frequency disturbance could possibly cause the crystals frequency to shift or fluctuate, causing the clock to run either slower or faster.
