How much does an inexpensive wall clock cost? Ten bucks. How much does an inexpensive WWV wall clock cost? A hundred bucks. Guess how much the movements cost?

According to Klockit, a quartz movement for a wall clock costs 1.85, and a WWV movement costs 8.95.

Talk about a profit margin! It costs seven bucks more to make, and sells for ninty bucks more.

Where are you shopping? The radio-clocks I get for work can be as low as $25 for a nice looking one. The fancy roman-numeral-and-wood one at home was only $45.

Noplace good I guess. I just found thirtyfive dollar WWV clocks in the same catalog/website I just cited.
