I'm just impressed with your watch.  My G-Shock stumbles all over itself when the
radio signal is missed, varying over a second a day.  Sounds like you got a good
manufacturing "outlier".

My watch is grand next to the Accu-Rite radio clock-thermometer sitting on my desk.
I've seen it off as much as a half hour after missing sync for a couple days.  It
also sometimes synchronizes to the wrong time.  Not just hours error but apparently
random displays.  I have a bunch of radio clocks and I've never seen THAT before.
