The existing clock can accommodate up to 9,999,999,999,999 dollars (1 dollar short of USD 10-trillion), whe the figure rose above that amount at the end of last month the clock failed to cope.

The clock is said to have been first installed when the national debt stood at about 2.7 trillion dollars in the year 1989.
