    Life with The Beast just keeps getting better!

    I knew that the Beast was the perfect watch for travelers like me, I never have to worry about finding a spot where the terrestrial radio signals will penetrate strong enough to sync.

    But now I'm home for a change, and I usually don't have any problems with all of my radio controlled watches syncing overnight. But last night for some reason none of my watches achieved sync. Atmospheric conditions can be a real .....!

    But no problem with the Beast! Stand by the window, initiate time sync, 10 seconds later... voila! A perfectly synchronized timepiece!

    My GPW1000-1B just got here today and I am absolutely floored by it. The sync took seconds, the build and weight are fantastic, and it just looks great. This is going to be getting tons of wrist time.



    I've got to say, I have a 7 1/4 in wrist and it fits great in my opinion. I was worried about the size of it but it's great, doesn't feel as over sized as one would expect.

    GPW : "T H E B E A S T" THREAD OF AWESOMENESS - Title says it all.

    Quick question I am trying to figure out why it is 6:30 PM on the East Coast and my 24 hour hand is saying it is 6:00 AM the top left clock at the 10 o'clock position. I did do I hand adjustment just to make sure my hands were all sync perfectly. Could I've messed it up then? I did a GPS T+P twice and that didn't correct it.

    Yes, that is off, isn't it?! Actually I think your 24 hr hand is saying it is 6:29am instead of 6:29pm. It's 12 hours off. Are you saying you did a manual time adjustment? If so, you probably set the current time to am instead of pm.

    In any case, I think it's time to look at the manual. Try instructions E-63 and E-64, setting time and date settings manually. Shouldn't be too hard to fix..

    GPW : "T H E B E A S T" THREAD OF AWESOMENESS - Title says it all.

    Ok, this is so strange. I did the manual set and made the time 9:00PM. The 24 hour hand was now correct, but my world time was incorrect. The world time is set to NYC the same city code for my home time. So I went outside just now and did a T+P again and now the 24 hr hand says 11:00. What is wrong...

    GPW : "T H E B E A S T" THREAD OF AWESOMENESS - Title says it all.

    I now just set the time manually. The time is correct and the 24 time is correct.
    I pull the crown out one click in the time mode and the second hand goes to 10 o'clock (NYC), but look at my world time clock it should say 21:25, but it says 8:25, what??? So frustrating. This all started after I tried to check the hand and day home positions as explained in the manual on page 67

    Random thought - does the watch "know" what time zone you are in correctly? When you click the "check GPS" button on just once, the second hand should then first point to yes or no, then the time zone the watch believes you to be in.

    I'm tired and may not be thinking totally clearly - but in the photo above, your 24 hr clock still seems to be showing 9:15am instead of 9:15pm (what your world time clock shows). It's still 12 hours off. When you set the time manually, did you look at the 24 hr clock to ensure that you were setting the am/pm properly? That's all I can think of right now..

    Re: GPW : "T H E B E A S T" THREAD OF AWESOMENESS - Title says it all.

    Well one more thing -- just to double check -- are your home and world times set properly using the crown? ON this watch, which is different than some other Gs, I think -- the first click out sets your WORLD time zone, and the second click your home time zone. Just thought I'd mention the obvious in case you had those backwards somehow.
