You adjust it but then how long does it stay adjusted.  The Earth, Moon and
Sun are in constant motion.   The gravity field is no static.   OK maybe
you could compute this and place the clocks n moving platforms?  They will
never agree, not at the lowest level.

Here is another question:  Is time a continuous function?  It may not be at
some scale.
