How accurate do you keep your watch

There are people who keep watch 5 minutes fast ..Whats the difference between the time your watch shows and the precise actual time now..My watch is 5-10 seconds fast than the BST.

i keep mine accurate. i need to, since when i'm at school, i have to keep track of time. i'm punctual, so keeping it fast to trick myself isn't necessary.

Yep - I'm one of the freaks.

5 minutes fast, baybee. Because I cannot handle the thought of being late.

what i mean is like...there's a clock in one of my classes, i set it to that...there's a weather/date/time number we have here, i usually set it to that cuz they're the same. since it's not like high school or anything where bells don't ring at the beginning and end of classes, i have to make sure i'm not late for class.

I set mine to the clock in our kitchen. The time of the school's clock changes everyday ( still don't know why) and when I walk into school I have a look at that time and walk around one entire day with my time +/- the missing minutes of the school's clock........I lead a weird life

no probs.

i'd say it's either spot on, or a minute fast/slow, depending on if there's been any power outtages or anything.

I set my clock to the exact time, hour, minutes and seconds. I hate being late and I'm also very punctual. I don't care if someone tells me it's this time or that time, they're usually off. I can't use the 5 minutes ahead or the behind, i get really confused because I know that's not the right time! aaaaahhhh! I'm just another one of those time freaks!

My watch matches the time that's on the phones at the college I work at/attend.

I used to keep my watch set to the same time as Ireland after I first became a U2 fan (I was 13). My friends would ask me what time it was, and I'd ask, "In Ireland or here?" They got so sick of that. *lol*
