    AWG-100 Analog not correct

    This may be a small issue but it is bugging me. My Awg-100 is on sync time digitally with the LCD read out. I matched it up against my cell phone and both are on spot. The analog readout however is off by about three minutes (too slow) Is there a way to get the watch to re calibrate or to change the analog on it so that it is correct? My reasoning for going with a gshock was the thought that it would be the absolute correct time all the time (more accurate than any rolex etc etc). So how should I fix this?

    The digital time is synced, and then the analogue time follows the digital time. So your watch is syncing correctly but the mechanical alignement of the hands needs to be adjusted. The manual describes how this can be done. A pdf of the manual is attached.

    If it keeps happening, the watch needs to go to Casio for repair.

    Thanks a ton. Got into the setting and adjusted it myself. I'll see how it goes later on and see if it keeps the time. Thanks for the help (didn't know that there would be a specific adjustment for this.

    Instead of creating a new thread I thought I could jsut keep this one since it probably has to do with my inability to set the watch correctly.

    Anyhow, the watch did not switch over hours for day light savings time. My computers and phone have switched over automatically but my watch refuses to even after checking that automatic update is indeed on. Any ideas?

    Is your AWG-100 set on "Auto" mode for Sync?; does it normally sync each night?........sorry if these are dumb questions, just trying to get an idea of your situation.

    Is auto receive enabled? Is DST set to auto? If so, DST in the digital display should be correct.

    The analogue hands do not adjust automatically, so will have to be reset manually.

    are you certain? I don't own a AWG-100/101 but I do own a GW-1310A and whenever the digital time syncs, so does the hands....

    Thanks for the correction, holger, I've re-checked the manual, and you're absolutely right.

    In that case, and assuming topslop has his watch set up correctly, I don't know why his watch didn't update properly. Perhaps it will tonight.

    Auto syncing is set to "ON". I've held down the "forward" which is "D" as stated in the manual to force a recalibration. I have tried doing that several times and it has given me "ERR" for error instead of updating and syncing correctly. I tried holding it out the window and doing the same thing. Today here in Tampa, FL the sky was heavy with clouds, but that shouldn't make a difference in picking up the radio signal should it?
