For the heck of it a YouTube video I did in 2015 September for an HP conference.

Hi Benrus,
glad that you are wearing it all the time. It´s time for a battery Change (lower dot on the right lights up!).

You can do that yourself: Remove the 4 screws of the back plate. Take a tweezer or a girlfriend with Long nails and open the connector which holds the flexible circuit board. Pull the flexible circuit board out of the connector. Take the tweezers again and remove the main circuit board. Replace the CR2032, positive side down. Assemble again.

Hanno :-D

Before you Change the battery activate the EE-Store function so that you don´t have to set all values again except for the minutes!

Press the button twice and hold until "batt" light up. Release the button. "Stor" flashes. Push the button once. "donE" lights up. Now Change the battery!
When you assemble everything the lower right dot should Flash. Whenever you are ready push the button once. Then set the Minute. Release the button. "Strt" should Flash. Push the button to start the time keeping with the next Minute exactly like you start the Pulsar LED.

Hanno.

Are there some posts missing from this thread? I am sure there were more recently about the HGWC. Is there another thread

Was it a different thread Ronaldheld talked about the weight of the HGWC? It was an interesting discussion.

Sorry guys, i keep an eye on every posting every day...but i did not see that discussion? The other thread is from Mick with lot of pictures of the watch.

Yeah i also begin to miss those famous flamewars M:)W:)M

I dont know I cant find it now but it was only in the last week or so. I thought maybe there had been a flame war I missed, we haven't had a pigeongate in a while.

I saw it and I'm pretty sure it was this thread, Ronaldheld said something about it being too heavy, and I think Hanno offered to make him one out of wood, Ronaldheld declined.

I saw the first part, but not the offer of wood. I thought it was here, glad the grey matter isnt completely defunct.

I remember the posts about weight and a wooden case.
