...so humor me. I have 3 autos, all with the Valjoux 7750. When setting the time I stop the second hand at zero, set the minute hand at the next minute according to my atomic clock and when when the time comes round I push the crown in to strt the watch.
I have noticed that sometimes after a few hours when the second hand is right on TDC (zero), the minute hand is not perfectly aligned with the minute marker. I see there is a slight bit of play when setting the minute hand to get it just right.
OK, so I'm nit picking but my question is, when setting the minute hand is it best to go backwards a bit and then forward to stop at the minute I want, or, is it better to go past and then back to the minute I want.
Hope that's clear.
