My favorite WWVB clock is the Junghans Mega Atomic Alarm Clock.  I 
have several of them and they work almost anywhere (in the USA).  The 
manual says to change the battery once every 30 days.  Just for fun I 
wanted to see how long they could go without having to change the AA 
battery - two of mine are well into their fifth year.  They have a 
large display and will tell you how many days since it last 
set.  They can be easily be found for $20 - $30.

See:  http://www.atomic-clocks.com/juatalcl.html

...Or, you can get them on eBay for around $200.00
