The consumer clocks use the NIST radio broadcasts.  I don't know which
of the clocks are multi-national, but I believe the time broadcasts
are only available in the US, Canada, Germany, the UK, and Japan with
each country having independent broadcast services.

There are always GPS units.  The system offers the capability of great
time accuracy though individual units vary.  There are firms that sell
units specifically designed for time synching.
