Clocks that aren't set by syncing to a web service, like your microwave, use a crystal that oscillates at a frequency that when divided into the time domain can give an oscillation similar to actual time.
However most crystals aren't really that accurate. So any seconds you are off from actual time, compound themselves into time lost, or time gained, depending on how much faster or slower the oscillation is.

I regularly have to bring my car clock up about 7 minutes every 6 months or so.
