    I have three stopwatches at the two sites where I live, with 80, 100 and 500 
    The best one is fast by 0.1 s/day, the worst one >5 s/day.
    I find that even the worst one is stable enough for interpolating
    times, even between two days, if the last time ref is soon after
    the obs pass.
