    Thumbs Up Good news on the Gulfman's accuracy!

    Ok, I acquired the G9100TC (below) a bit over a month ago and set the time based on my dad's exec waveceptor model (WVQ600DCA-2AV) which had synced the night before, and then I compared the times again one month later to find that the Gulfman had only added 3 seconds to the fully synced waveceptor's time. Only 3 secs out, or a bit over 1/2 a minute a year!!!

    That's a hell of a lot better than +/-15 secs a month.



    I should add that I don't use the el backlight or alarms...I don't know if that affects accuracy or not.

    That's good to know. But are all G9100TC's built the same?

    I assume so, but I guess slight quality control differences could affect the timing accuracy in each unit.

    Looks like I got a beauty though.

    I have a solar gulfman for about 2 weeks now... +1 second fast so far and for whatever reson it did not sync since I purchased it. Last sync done at the end of september. Impressive.

    P.S.

    It's even more impressive how I have it for about 2 weeks straight and it did not leave my wrist since. I guess this one really stoke a cord with me.

    Same thing for my GW-9000A. I think it's running around +2-3 secs a month. Most accurate watch I've ever owned.

    They seem to be generally very accurate.

    May be Casio say their accuracy is +/-15 secs for worst case senarios like extreme heat or cold.

    Anyway, I thought it was impressive for a cheap plastic watch.

    Extreme heat or cold (especially cold) must be right since I've left my Gs in the past in the car by accident. On a cold day watch tends to collect as much as 2-3 seconds per day.

    So I second that tought. Casio is well known to use "extremes" when specifying the specs. Remeber battery spec in Casio? They always assume 20sec per day operation of alarm and usafe of night light. Hence the reason that batteries in Casio Gs easily last double than advertised.

    P.S.

    Considerign the feeling of quality that we recently get out of Casio they're certanly not "cheap feeling devices"... Plastic? Yes (other than casing on some model), Cheap? No.

    I tested one of my Waveceptor G-Shocks for a year, with the Waveceptor function turned off. The watch was located in a box in my bedroom. Over the coarse of the year, the watch gained a total of 3 seconds. Pretty impressive.

    Then I moved the watch into the colder basement for 5 months. It gained 13 seconds over the 5 months. Still very good, but the change in environment made a huge difference.

    I meant cheap as in price...the quality of Casios generally surprises me in a good way; kinda the point I was making with this thread.
