You can set your watch by it

There are at least three ways to tell time without a watch from where I live.  The air raid siren that goes off downtown at noon every Tuesday is audible.  There are plenty of bells from the adjacent cathedral, Our Lady of Perpetual Agitation, although they don't always correlate well with Earth time.
And lastly, as retaliation upon the shoppers of San Francisco for not spending lots of money during Fleet Week (thanks to the sequester, we were spared the Blue Angels' aural assault this year), the waterfront merchants have paid for fireworks every Saturday night at 8:30 pm this month.  Thanks for that.
