    Pen Re: Do you have a few good links?

    Dear friends,
    took me more than 6 months to put this together... must be so lazy... it's not perfect yet, but readable IMHO!


    Enjoy! More will follow...
    Cheers, Don

    Here's a handy reference of current Breitling watches, listed by caliber, movement, power reserve, case material, water resistance, diamter, thickness and weight.

    Can you post a few good links that you find helpful, useful, or just plain brilliant when it comes to finding that tidbit of breitling/watch related information we all spend hours hunting for. We know that WatchUseek has a links page but the web is a big place and there are myriad sources being developed every day. What have you come across? Show and tell .

    Addendum...

    First, download the Public Domain NIST Software from the NIST site. After you load it, "query" their server to correct your internal PC time. Here is the site to obtain the free software...

    Then go to this page and check out the visualiztion...

    IMO, this is a bit easier to use for watch setting/accuracy checking than the PC date/time utility provided with the operating system or most of the other available displays on a PC.

    Well, now I've started using this site in Germany (link below) which constantly updates from Atomic Clock Time and even with transmission delays it is supposedly accurate to within three tenths of a second. The display is a large font arabic number counter which allows you to hold a watch up to your computer screen for a pretty good side by side time comparison and/or "hack". Give it a try with one of your SuperQuartz babies and see how you like it....
    Cheers,

    Err... PCs sync with nist.gov by default anyway.

    Hi, Eagle. Well, I respectfully disagree for a couple of reasons. First, the time you set on the PC yourself can only be synched to nist.gov if you query their server (automatically or clicking on the motif button). The time you set initially (when you first install the OS) will only change if you change it, your motherboard clock varies its regulation (battery weak or power surge) or you connect to a server and sync to it. If you have no connection, modem dialed up, cable, dsl, T-1, whatever, it will not default synchronize to nist.gov or any other source. If you download the nist software and then "query" their server, a difference calculation is made and the suggestion to synch or not is made to you by their software. Just my .02 worth and I am always open to correction....
    Cheers,
    Ron

    errmm Ron, click on your start bar clock... assuming you have an XP machine.. click on the 'internet time' tab for the options available to you. Sync to a nist server once a week is selectable or sync now is available if needed.

    Hi, Snap. Learn something new every day about these new fangled computer thingies. The problem I've had (not knowing the task tray clock had an automatic scheduled "nist" sync capability) has been the rate variance of my PC clock of sometimes greater than ten or 12 seconds. As you know, after downloading the nist software and querying their servers, the error amount is shown and option given to correct the amount if necessary. Interestingly, my PC did indeed have the 24 hour sync to nist option set already (default condition?) but exhibited sometimes large variances of which I was unaware until manually querying the nist servers. Perhaps a weak motherboard battery but could be something else of course. At least the reassurance of accuracy with the optional immediate correction provided some confidence in my variation checks. Previously, I was concerned the B-1 was drifting... Hahahahahahahahahaha!!!! Fat chance! In any case, I used some language translation software to infer that the German site to which I linked implies it is never more than 3 tenths/sec off the atomic clock even considering all network delays because it is continually correcting for those delay variances. Whew! :oops: That was a long sentence! Sorry... Perhaps of more importance.... the numbers are large enough for me to actually see!!! Anyway, I doubt if my reaction time and finger coordination will ever be within 3 tenths so I'm good to go...
    Cheers, mate.
