    Coralline, I'd be glad to trade you a new Casio or Timex for your Vector but
    I'd be robbing you.
    The manual for the Vector explains how to hack the seconds to :00 when
    setting the time. Pretty much the same way that all digital watches do it.
    It also seems to show that hours:minutes can be displayed on the upper
    larger display while seconds are displayed on the lower smaller display,
    this is a choice of displays modes from what they show.
    http://www.suunto.com if you don't have the manual you can download it, or
    call them toll-free in the US for help.
    But I'll still gladly trade you a new Casio for it if that's easier. Or my
    pet Timex, that keeps outstanding time, close to 2 seconds per month last
    time I checked.

    Subject: recommendations for wristwatch "inexpensive"
    I am planning on buying an inexpensive wristwatch that will be set to gmt,
    and would like to hear what others on the list recommend.  My current
    is a suunto vector but is a pain as it has no zero set for seconds and
    really doesnt
    display seconds anyway instead they use a moving 3 block thingy which
    is only an approximation.  One specific thing the watch should have is
    the button
    to start seconds at the wwv minute tone.  Display of time to the
    second is required
    and date is  also desirable with digital display the preference.
    Any other opinions would be welcome but I cant spend
    a lot at this time (under 1 or 2 hundred dollars)
    I use the sextant alone so a stopwatch function would be great but may just
    that as a separate instrument.
    Note: I have gps but that would be cheating.
