Why hotter clocks are more accurate

-

Interestingly, many everyday clocks have an efficiency that is close to what the scientists’ analysis predicts. For example, their formula predicts that a wristwatch whose accuracy per tick is one part in ten million must consume at least a microwatt of power. In fact, a basic wristwatch usually consumes only a few times this amount. The laws of thermodynamics, discovered in the nineteenth century, are still finding new applications today.
