Q7: How do I read the GMT hand?
A7: It is a 24 hour hand with midnight at 6 o clock normal time. In that way it will show 12:00 at 12 o clock for the normal time. There are indicators in green showing the GMT time at 3, 6 and 9 o clock and in the sub dials.

Q12: What is the maximum time for the Stopwatch?
A12: 24 hours. After that it will continue to run as if it was just started from 0, but you will have to keep track of the number of times it has reached 24 hours.

Q13: How does the GMT Offset dial work?
A13: It indicates hours from GMT for the local time (the orange hands).

Q14: How do I set the local time?
A14: This is done by changing the time on your device. Apple does not allow any App to change the device's time.

Q15: How can I tell the time from the Minute Repeater and Sonnerie?
A15: They work in a similar way. The Minute Repeater and Grande Sonnerie announce the time in the same way. First one dong per hours, then one ding/dong for every 15 minutes and then a ding for every minute left. So the time 16:17 would sound like dong - dong - dong - dong - ding/dong - ding - ding.

Q16: What is the difference between the Grande and Petite Sonnerie?
A16: They both tell the time every quarter on the quarter. The Grande announce hours and quarters while the Petite only announce hours on the hour, then only the quarters.
