    HAQ summary 2018

    Looks as if i have been doing this for at least 13 years. All the watch were unworn

    Tag Microtimer -44s


    Sjoo Sandstrom ORC -11s

    Krieger MC +67s

    Pulsar PSR-10 +31s

    GS quartz +18s

    The Citizen +5s

    Kreiger minute hand is jumping in 5 second intervals, so likely needs a new battery.
    blfan, tsteph12, gsilkey and 3 others like this.

    You have a very interesting collection of HAQ pieces. I did not know TAG made that model and had not seen the Sjoo before either.
    Your numbers are impressive for the "The Citizen" and "Sjoo" and a little disappointing for the "GS". Would you mind providing a little more information on these?

    1. Are all of these watches approximately the same age?
    2. I presume the Citizen is the A660 movement. Is that correct? (or A010 or A060)
    3. The Krieger and GS should be user adjustable. Have you made any attempt to adjust any of these?
    4. What movement does your GS have? Approximately how old is it?

    I guess I am also making the assumption that your +18s for the GS is meant to be +18SPY. Since GS has recently published that their adjuster "steps" are in increments of 6SPY, if it were mine, I would be very tempted to turn it 3 clicks in the minus direction.

    (I am especially interested in your results because about 2 months ago I purchased a GS SBGT237 and a Citizen AQ1000-66E and have started my own unscientific timing tests using time.gov as the standard. It's a neck-and-neck horse race so far.)

    Any way, best regards and thanks for your post.

    1 No they vary in age acquired with the missing Casio the newest.
    2 Citizen is the A660 movement older than 10 years.
    3 Fo lot know if the Kreiger is user adjustable. It keeps "good enough" time usually. Will see after the battery charge. Uncertain about the GS performance this year.

    Here you go:

    Truth is, I was hoping you were having more luck with yours than I am with mine. My three NOS Casios were all performing splendidly for a while, then one by one they all started going wrong. There is one other SP-410 that I am aware of and the owner of that one says that his is going wrong, too.

    Casio have suggested sending the watches back to them for inspection, but right now I am pretty disappointed. If you are having difficulty setting your Casio, it could simply be that it is having the same sort of problems that all the others are having. And I say "all the others" because I have only ever come across six of these and whilst I have not heard any more about the other SP-400G that popped up on this forum some years ago, having at least four of six watches malfunctioning is not promising.

    Yep, that's right. Forgot about that. I've never updated mine because of your warnings. Still love mine!

    My impression, is that I should not send it back to Casio?
