: 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?

Hi, Ken.

Congratulations for your first SP. I hope you enjoy it for a very long time. It's known that the lemania movement inside it hasn't got the hack feature. Just try to adjust it using the minutes hand and don't be very obsessed with sub second precision; 10/15 sec. per day is OK for such an old movement which beats at 21.600 bps. (the slower, the less precise). I thing this is a price worth paying for a classic timepiece.

Best regards.
