    PAW 1200 - How to set World Time DST automatically?

    Hi, I've a PAW1200T-7V. All features work fine, great hughe watch, I love this chunky watch, but one feature is not going as expected:

    When I have configured my home location to "BER", as I'm located in Europe, it gives me the correct atom local time with DST, all fine so far.

    Now if I check for example the world time in NYC it is one hour behind, because it not automatically adds DST to NYC. I can do that manually, but that is not preferred of course; I don't want to fix all DST issues for all world time cities manually by marking them each individually as having DST at this moment, but make it work automatically.

    I tried to first set DST in mode OFF for my home location and set it back to AT, but that did not fix it for the world time cities.

    Does anyone know if the world time cities can be configured with DST automatically?

    Thanks!
    Ed

    You can't do this, you _have_ to do it manually...

    http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/full.html

    That's the site I use to make it easier, then it's just scrolling and holding Adjust to set DST per city in World Time.

    Hi, thanks for your advise!

    It is a pity, but actually understandable since it is subject to changes in plan, that this is not automated in the watch. I used the website you provided as input and created the following overview. The list is ordered on the world cities as defined in the PAW1200T-7V, to make it more easy when perfoming the manual changes to the watch for this and next year. I will post it here, as perhaps it is usefull for anyone else also:

    Which you can't do, you have to manually go through all the cities in the World Time mode and set them to DST (IF they have DST). What's confusing about that?
