Bathys Hawaii unveils atomic wristwatch

This prototype watch has an atomic clock under the hood. (Credit: Bathys Hawaii) Watchmaker Bathys Hawaii has a different kind of smartwatch in mind these days. The Cesium 133 prototype wristwatch manages to stuff an entire atomic clock into a wearable gadget. Watches that communicate with atomic clocks to set their time have been around for years, but a wrist-wearable atomic clock is another matter. The Cesium 133 has the usual gears and levels causing the hands to move, but instead of quartz crystal inside, there's a cesium atomic oscillator. According to Bathys Hawaii, the watch will only lose one second over every 1,000-year period.
