    Explain high speed hand movement

    I see a lot of a analog and ana digi Gs have a high speed hand setting. What exactly does the mode do and what is it for?

    I found the feature in the manual of f.i. the new EQW-A1000 Edifice watch. It has 2 high speed hand settings, see first page of the manual...

    I guess every Casio watch with analog hands has it. If you want to adjust a hand you can press the adjust button (or maybe there are two for forward and backward operation) once and it just will turn one step. If you hold the button the hand(s) will turn (in high speed) until you release the button or press it again (this depends on the model). However, I am not 100% sure but this is how it should work and it could be useful if you have to adjust the minute and hour hands which are connected so that the minute hand has to do a full circle until the hour hand has moved 1 hour forward

    ^ This is extraordinary. I did not know they had achieved such high speed dexterity with robotic instruments. Given how far they've come, I'm confident to say we're just around the corner from a fully replicated humanoid, that could walk and move about us without revealing its robotic machinery underneath. It's just mind boggling. With a good set of heuristic decision making algorithms, welcome to "I, Robot."
