    So the minute hands on my GW2000BD are slightly off.... =(

    I believe the minute hand is to move every 10 seconds, or 6 times per minute, but now it's not lining up with the minute hash when the second hand strikes 12.

    Also, the sub-minute hand (on the 24hr dial at 3 o'clock) appears to be 2 minutes slow.

    Confused! Pics to come later, but I'm at work now. Any ideas?

    my gw2000 also had sick hands. it was replaced under warranty and the new watch was immediately sold on the classifieds. of course there are many satisfied gw2000'ders here, but i was... suspicious of the module.

    edit:
    i agree with those below, first try aligning the home positions. my watch would not stay aligned for more than 24 hours- a more severe problem.

    That's disappointing.. I wear the watch every day for work (nothing else will do!) and it's really solid otherwise.. I need to check into warranty. Thanks!

    This can easily be fixed by adjusting the hands so that they line up correctly. It is called 'Adjusting to the Home Position'.

    There will be a section in your manual called 'Adjusting the Home Position' just follow the instructions there and you should be fine.

    I expereinced this same thing on my GW2500BD, and resolved it very easily. I've found this watch to be one of the best I've had.

    This is a common issue which is _not_ a problem. It's just something that occurs if the watch is not fully charged or had been exposed to magnetism. Casio has a provision for correcting the position of the hands so they become fully accurate. It's called "Adjusting the Home Positions" and you will find it on page five of your manual that came with the watch.

    Cheers...

    Thanks guys!! I'll definitely check the manual when I get home.. I've tried numerous button combos (even Contra), to no avail.

    Keep us posted on your efforts. Now I am wondering if the Tough Movement was a neccessity instead on an innovation.
