In this talk I will discuss the existence of time-translation symmetry breaking in a kicked infinite-range-interacting clean spin system described by the Lipkin-Meshkov-Glick model. This Floquet time crystal is robust under perturbations of the kicking protocol, its existence being intimately linked to the underlying Z_2 symmetry breaking of the time-independent model. I show that the model being infinite range and having an extensive amount of symmetry-breaking eigenstates is essential for having the time-crystal behavior. In particular, I discuss the properties of the Floquet spectrum, and show the existence of doublets of Floquet states which have quasienergies differing by half of the driving frequency, a key essence of Floquet time crystals. Remarkably, the stability of the time-crystal phase can be directly analyzed in the limit of infinite size, discussing the properties of the corresponding classical phase space.
