Finally got my Speedy Pro!!

After all the comments and reviews that I've found. I finally got my first Speedmaster Pro. I got the 30th Anniversary Speedy Pro (3560.50), with serial 38XX/9999. The authorized dealer had to get it (only one available) from another store in Washington, or else Omega said there will be a 12 week wait period due to the backlog. I was lucky that the store gave me a 24% discount for the watch.

I hope to enjoy this watch since it's my first Speedy Pro. The only question I have is how to hack this watch. The second hand does not stop when I pull the crown. How can I set my watch to better than 1 minute accuracy?
