2008 on IWC's Perpetual Calendar

Yes, I will post the video after I do some needed editing. The change over began at about 5 minutes before midnight and was complete at 5 minutes past.

Here is a still photo taken around noon today EDT USA showing the new year.

Best to all in 2008,

Bill

What a great idea Bill. Can't wait to see it posted.

So to answer the question, here's what I'd do:

1) change the time on the watch to be exactly 1 minute slow.
2) kiss the wife at midnight (real time)
3) watch the date change at 12:01

There, I get to have my cake & eat it too. And the good thing - I won't be eating the cake in the dog house!! :T :lol:

I failed to kiss at midnight as it took until 5 minutes after to see the change over and I started recording it 10 minutes before midnight.

UNFORTUNATELY, the video did not turn out well. Too much hand shake as I was not using a tripod. Sorry....
