   Mike S,

   I think you missed the point !  One does not ask the question "How does
   one get a 32.768KHz signal from our 10MHz reference ?" and not expect
   it to cost both in terms of money and effort.  There was no statement
   of doing it cheap, re-read the original Email.

     You're missing the point. The application is to drive a common,
     available consumer clock. Simple and cheap. It can be done with a
     single $1 PIC. You could spend $20 or $100 and not get better
     for the application. If you can describe a way of doing it for
     please do.
