    Time-keeping problem with AWG-100.

    I have been trying to fix the time because my digital time is correct but the analog-minute hand display is 5 minutes before the actual time and it has been like that for the past month. I do have the correct home-city settings. If anybody can assist me it will be greatly appreciated.

    There is a chapter in the manual "hands home position".
    You have to sync the hands to the LCD.

    Self-syncing are only "tough movement" models.

    I hope that helps.

    What do you mean by "sync the hands to the LCD"? I set the LCD on my AWG100 and the hands moved automatically.

    When you correct the hands home position, you're basically making sure the hands point at 12 when the time should be 12, hence "syncing the hands to the LCD".

    Yes, but the CPU doesnt know where the hands are.
    So the hands are moved on every 20sec.
    But you need to have the correct starting point.

    From factory the hands are running synced but they may go out of sync by shock or magnetic forces.

    Thats why Casio recently introduced the tough movement models.
    They will line up the hands every hour or so.

    Ah, okay, now I follow.

    Man, I really need to finish reading that manual. I got it last night after work, so I was dead tired.

    Must take a heck of a good shock to un-sync the hands. Mine has not left my wrist since I got it and the hands have stayed completely in sync with the digital readout.
