Re: Accuracy checking systems

Damn..... Just checked my Citizen quartz solar watch that I am wearing today. It has gained 1 second since the change back to standard time. At this rate it would be off by 12 seconds per year. Must be time for a new one. It is 15 years old after all.

Re: W8 rest

Given its age I would start with a battery replacement. After the battery replacement you will likely need to reset the chronograph hands anyway. Instructions are in the W8 manual (page 18).
