When I set my watches, whether quartz or automatic, I try not to move the minute hand to the correct position until the second hand is at (or near) the 12 o clock position. But is what I'm doing even necessary?
I do the same (or similar). If it hacks then I'll wait until its at 60 before pulling the crown out to set it.
If it doesn't hack, or it's quartz, then I'll set the minute hand between markers to roughly agree with the seconds.
