    Hi Evertonian,

    Rusty is right. You have to manually set the DST to the different time zones. Hong Kong (and Japan) doesn't have DST, so the difference between European times jump one hour twice a year.

    To correct (according to your manual) you must set your UK time to DST. In timekeeping mode, press upper right (maybe for three seconds). If the seconds blink, push the lower left button. If I'm correct, you are in DST mode. It should be on now. Probably the UK time will now be one hour ahead. Push on the lower left button. Check if you are now in the right UTC offset. For the UK that should be now +1. Press on the lower left button again to set the hours right. If set right, you only have to switch the DST twice a year.

    Cheers,

    Sjors
