I've got one. There's a picture of it here (first picture on the page): http://www.heise.de/tp/r4/artikel/20/20671/1.html

It synchs to DCF77, but you can add an integer offset so that its usable as a synchronised clock anywhere you can get DCF77 (most of the UK, for example) and it can free-run anywhere else (as it doesn't do fractional timezones there are some obvious exceptions).
