    Well, that was fun!

    Just spent "a while" changing non atomic watches to DST.

    Not much on the t.v. Wife a kids are asleep so I figured I would go ahead and get that chore out of the way.

    Twice a year I envy the folks who have nothing but solar atomic G's. I have three of them, soon to be a fourth. I just ordered a GW6900 from Amazon for $65 after discount code.


    But it's nice to enjoy the older models as well.


    Everyone else with battery powered G's enjoy changing to DST tomorrow.

    Good night,
    Casio/ Citizen/ G-Shock/ Pro Trek/ Seiko

    Kind of interesting how the atomic timepieces work:

    The DST marker is at :57 of each minute, after the leap second marker.

    I've already finished setting my digitals ahead -- seems like it takes me less time every year despite having more watches! Admittedly, I've learned to press two "B" buttons at the same time when one of the atomics gets to xx:xx.00.

    Interesting, but I still find it slightly amusing that my atomics go from 12:00.10 to "receiving" to 1:05.00 -- an hour early.

    I gave up. I've only been collecting since 2009 but I have nearly 50 battery Gs and what's gonna happen tonight is that half of them will start being almost correct again :D

    I just make sure to correct the time whenever I decide to wear one. I should sell them, but when ever I get one in my hands, I turn into Smeagol/Gollum with the ring.

    I almost never wear any watch other than a G-Shock. My collection is listed here-->http://watchshock.com/collection/1471/

    Other watches: Invicta Sub-Aqua Venom 5733 & Coalition Forces 0225, Suunto Vector, Traser Mil-G Type 6 P6600 Celebration Edition, Luminox 3059.SAR and a few cheap Timex & Armitron

    Yea, selling them is like selling kids. Each watch is fun in its own way.
    Spent the last hour manually syncing a few in Auto DST for fun, especially the analog GW-3000M, watching the hands swing around.

    So this means that the atomic watches in Europe are showing the incorrect time for New York, for example, at the moment.

    I didn't own one this time last year. So the question is, will the atomic g-shocks here show the correct world time for NY tomorrow after the night time sync?
