Then pull the crown out two clicks when the second hand is at 60. Adjust the minute hand so that it is correct for the next minute. Use what ever reference source for accurate time and press in the crown when it reaches the minute. Please note that the minute hand has a small amount of slack in its mechanism so will move only when the mechanism is pushing it along, practise makes perfect so you may have to edge the minute hand fractionally forward beyond a minute.I have yet to come across any mechanical watch that does not have this issue including two IWCs, a JLC, a Zenith and Rolex and a couple of pocket watches.Even analogue quartz watches can have the same issue. But its not a problem just an issue and you will get used to it.
