                                  DECISION ON APPEAL                                  
               This is a decision on appeal under 35 U.S.C.  134 from                
          the  rejection of claims 1, 2, 4, 8-11, and 14.  We affirm-in-              
          part.                                                                       


                                     BACKGROUND                                       
               The invention at issue in this appeal relates to time                  
          keeping.  A timepiece needs to be reset when the boundary of a              
          time zone is traversed.  This need is particularly troublesome
