    Atomic G-Shock re-calibrate

    Do the atomic watches adjust even if not set in a window? I live in upstate NY but don't have a window sill facing west.

    It doesn't necessarily have to be by a window, I used to own one and I wore it to sleep and it would sync up while I slept. I live in Southern California.

    Atomic watches don't need a window necessarily unless you are inside a steel framed building. Just aim the top (12 oclock) toward Colorado by midnight when it should automatically start syncing. If not, you can start the sync manually per the owners manual, which is available by online .pdf download.

    From upstate New York, don't expect a manual synch to work during daylight hours -- the radio signals travel MUCH farther at night: Coverage Area for NIST Radio Station WWVB

    All nine of my atomics synch every night here in Ohio, across the room from a west-facing window. My newest atomic is a PAW-1100 Pathfinder, which consistently surprises me by synching while on my wrist in the rec room/computer room, which is on the ground floor of a split-level house with only south- and east-facing windows!

    At the moment I own 3 Atomics and they don´t sync while near the window. But when in the back of my room and in their box they sync every night. I think the atomic signal is bouncing around or sort of has its focus there. The best thing ... two of them are analog and when the box lid is closed they sort of go into batt saving mode. When I open the lid they start to come to live and even the seconds hands are in sync. Kind of satisfying ;)

    I just sync them manually whenever I am wearing them outside.

    As you can see, your worries are unfounded. I've said this before, mine are on a lower shelf, down by my desk at knee level, they face East to the Atlantic Ocean and sync almost nightly with no issue and I am in the middle of South Carolina.

    Whether the radio signal is strong enough to be caught by your watch really depends on your location and the kind of building you are in. Some guys with window apts in NYC have a heck of a time getting a signal no matter where the watch is stored. The only way to tell if your watch will work from an inside location is to try it. Even if the window is not west facing it presents the least obstruction and may end up being a good location to store the watch. The best opportunity for catching a signal it will be in the early morning so be sure to have it resting in one place overnight.
