My watch is one of these:


(Casio module 3050)

I was wondering whether it was good design on Casios part - i.e.
discipline the oscillator based on the radio signal, but if yours is off
then that throws that idea out the window. Is it the same watch?

I really need another unit as a control.

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".
