A form of hacking isn't it ? I would call it a hack correction.
When setting a Casio digital wrist watch I hack it to the exact tick by short wave then subtract 1 second on the actual observation to allow for the time it takes the eye to go from scope to watch. If fractions of a second are needed then a stop watch is started on the exact short wave tick then stopped or split on the mark. This method works good when rating quartz clocks and watches. The stop watch method also works well for preseving time during twilight observations then round to the nearest whole second. During the day I just read the wrist watch and subtract a second.
