    G Shock timekeeping

    Hey Guys,
    Thought that you'd like this bit of superfluous information.
    Found a Baby G (I don't want to hear the catcalls) that I purchased back in '99-today. Haven't worn it since probably 2001. Just for grins and giggles I checked the time with that of the USNO (US Naval Observatory) and it was only 19 seconds off !
    I thought that was amazing after 5 years laying around in my closet.
    I'm sure that it could've been minutes ahead when I lost it in '01 but there's no way to remember that.
    Anyway, it impressed the heck out of me.

    Hi Spartan,

    I think you are very lucky... I have several DW-6900 and DW-6600 versions. Some of them are more than 19 seconds off a month (rated + or - 30 secs a month). The newer models are much more accurate. BTW, why doesn't your girlfriend wear it?

    Cheers,

    Sjors

    Hey Sjors,
    Yeah. My fingers are faster than my brain most of the time.
    Ref my Baby G...I'd love to have my girlfriend wear it but if my wife found out I'd be in deep "kimshi"!!!
