Hi Groundhog,The same goes for almost any quality mechanical watch as well as most quartz watches.
Hi Scott,Some of today's watches even feature a "return to zero" feature, so that when you pull the crown out, it moves the second hand to zero for syncronization.
That's a feature that I'd love to have on all of my mechanicals! It's like a chrono seconds hand feature. Are ETA movements capable of this, or is it unique to specific "in house" movements? Very interesting! ;-)
