    newbie question about atomic signal in Europe

    I will be in London in a month and I'm looking to buy a GW M5600-1ER wich has radio signal capabilities almost all over the world..

    Ok here is the scenario : buy the watch in London and get the UK signal,then after 3 days in London we will take the Eurostar to Paris and.....will I get the CET signal ??? How does that operate ?? Is that another frequency ??

    thanks for your replies..

    hi. the atomic signal is sent as utc. the receiving watch has to be programed with the user's utc offset (timezone).

    you'll buy the watch in the uk and set your home city to london. it will sync to the uk signal. then you'll travel to paris. without doing anything, your watch will sync to either the german or uk signal, and be an hour off. you could either change your home city to paris (easiest if you'll be a few days or want to use alarms), or you can scroll your world time to paris.

    is that explanation clear? :thanks
