Which clock works best, the one that loses a minute a day, or the one that does not work at all?

Riddle: Which clock works best, the one that loses a minute a day, or the one that does not work at all?

The answer of this riddle is quite easy. The one that does not work is best as it will always be correct twice a day, but the one that loses a minute a day will not be correct again for 720 days (losing 720 minutes or 12 hours).

 

In other words, the clock that does not work at all tells the correct time at least twice a day, one at am and the other at pm. For example, if the hands got stuck at 4, the clock will tell the correct time at 4 am and at 4 pm.

Answer:  The one that doesn’t work is best as it will always be correct twice a day, but the one that loses a minute a day will not be correct again for 720 days (losing 720 minutes or 12 hours).
