Woah, woah, is that guy intentionally magnetizing his watch? That's crazy!
My Gulfmaster never had this problem but I've seen several F17 members reporting it (my GM was made in 2018. Most Gulfmasters with the stuck hand issue seem to have been produced in 2016) It looks like using a magnet can solve this problem without causing any new ones.

Before applying this technique you can ask the author if he has had any negative effects on his watch after using a magnet on it.

I would check for:

* misaligned hands (analog time not matching digital time)

* digital display problems

If it works, this method is, indeed, much simpler than trying to fix the problem by sending the watch to CASIO to have it repaired.
