    Lightbulb G-Shock calendar worries unfounded!

    Although many a smart-arse before me has probably noticed this:

    Although the auto calendar on (most? all?) G's only goes as far as 2039, in 2040 you can simply reset your watch to 2020 and hey presto, the date will work correctly again. And if you have a year display, you will have the added benefit of 'twenties retro.

    Now I hope that puts your minds to ease!

    Ha Ha, Kev,

    Yep I know that the days of the years repeat themselves every X years. I didn't know how much X was, but appearently it's 20 years.

    Thanks,

    Although I knew there was a cycle, because there are eternal calenders, you are actually the first person in 2 and a half year coming up with this....

    Won't work with 2000 though. Just so you don't go missing any important meetings or anything I thought I'd warn you.

    We won't be able to afford new watches on our meagre pensions anyway, this tip might be worth its weight in gold. And imagine all those "useless" 40 year old G-Shocks on ebay - I'm gonna make a killing...
