    can the radio signal sync date and DST ??

    Of course I could try this by myself but let me take advantage of the experts out here.....

    If I completely mess up the date,time and DST on my GW M5600 1er tonight before bedtime,will I find it perfectly tuned again tomorrow morning ??

    Yes, if you have sync enabled and DST set to 'auto'.
    I used to list my watches here until I realised it ruined people's Google searches...

    As long as you don't mess with the time zone (home town) you should have no problem.

    ...assuming it has a successful sync of course.

    DCF77, the signal you'll receive in Sardinia, does include date, month, and 2-digit year. It even includes day of week.

    Yes. The radio signal from the atomic clock transmitter even includes Daylight Saving Time to Standard Time (or vice-versa) changeover. That's the convenience of this feature.
