    to time

    What does "to time" mean below:

    "That clock on the landing is wrong."

    "Nothing of the sort. It's exactly to time."

    Thanks!

    Re: to time

    I understand from the context that it means the clock is very accurate, but I personally have never heard this expression in my life.
