I tried to find something like this when I used to travel a lot across time zones. Auto Time update in new countries will be the tricky part. It will only auto-update properly if it has access to wifi or a 3G signal, or one of those Standard Time and Frequency radio stations. There are some on the market that auto-update from the WWF radio station in Fort Collins but I assume they will only work in North America and then I'm not sure how or if they auto-update for timezones.

None of those is impossible or even difficult but the problem is that if you come to rely on it and end up somewhere where you don't have that access, you will be WATS (well and truly stuffed!).

If there is such a device on the market I'd like to know. It's my birthday coming up and it would make a nice prezzie!
