Hello John,
The model number provided is not an atomic clock but a Set and Forget clock. The clock and calendar are pre-programmed to the correct time and date, and update automatically for Daylight Savings Time. All you need to do is select your time zone using the “TIME ZONE” dial.  However, with the age of this specific model, the coin cell battery located inside the battery compartment is possibly dead not allowing it to save time. 

If your hour is changing, please verify you have the DST(daylight savings time) set to ON if DST effects your location. Please let us know if you have any other questions. Thank you.
