To correct a clock that is bonging the wrong hour on the hour, just turn the hour hand to the correct hour the clock bonged, then reset the time correctly with the minute hand letting it bong as you go.

 Atomic Clock Encyclopedia Articles @ LaunchBase.org (Launch Base)   (Site not responding. Last check: )
An atomic clock is a type of clock that uses an atomic resonance frequency standard to feed its counter.
The first accurate atomic clock, based on the transition of the caesium-133 atom, was built by Louis Essen in 1955 at the National Physical Laboratory in the UK.
When the incidence of detected atoms decreases because the frequency of the microwave oscillator has drifted from the true resonance frequency, the frequency of the oscillator is corrected.

 clock manual page - Tcl Built-In Commands
Tcl responds to leap seconds by speeding or slowing its clock by a tiny fraction for some minutes until it is back in sync with UTC; its data model does not represent minutes that have 59 or 61 seconds.
Most of the subcommands supported by the clock command deal with times represented as a count of seconds from the epoch time, and this is the representation that clock seconds returns.
Unlike clock seconds and clock milliseconds, the value of clock clicks is not guaranteed to be tied to any fixed epoch; it is simply intended to be the most precise interval timer available, and is intended only for relative timing studies such as benchmarks.
