So I bought this watch CITIZEN PROMASTER SATELLITE WAVE AIR Eco-Drive CC1054-56E and right away off the box noticed that it was 2 seconds fast after having satellite reception. I read through the manual and did an all reset and set the seconds hand to 2 seconds behind. That seemed to have fixed the issue however when seconds hand points to "OK" "NO" and "RX" it's crooked because of the 2 seconds difference. Now it's not a big deal but I feel like someone at Citizen factory set the hand wrong and for the money i paid for the watch this shouldn't be an issue. I bought the watch on e-bay and the return window is closed. What do I do next? Do I contact Citizen directly or what should i do next. BTW I love the watch and it is a great time piece other than this little issue I have with it :undecided:
I'd like to point out i own two more citizen nighthawk atomic clock radio watches and have no issues with them. No idea why this one was set this way

Zero the hands correctly then leave the watch somewhere high to get the reception for a few nights.

You probably can manually set the time so look up how to do that, and, optionally, should be able explicitly tell the watch to expend the power to actively try and sync with the time signal.

This is a digital device so using the hand calibration to "set" the time is just not the way it works. The hand recalibration is for mostly if you somehow knock the hands out of zero. i.e. if you've calibrated the hands to what you think is the time, once the digital clock inside gets the correct time your hands will then be off by whatever you calibrated it to.
