The strangest thing happened

Havenít worn my 116500LN for a few weeks. I took it out the safe this morning and attempted to set the time. The watch had stopped running but was set exactly to the correct time of day! I simply wound it and was good.

Whatís the probability of this happening. 24 hours x 60 minutes x 60 seconds = 1 in 86400? Any mathematicians around?

Hi Vetracer, use 12 instead of 24 as there's no date on the 116500LN and you'll get the correct probability for your watch model.
