FA43 Limited registers as 42mm?

Anyone with a explanation to why the K-3 III shows 42mm instead of 43mm on the SR. K-1 says 43...
It's an unfortunate side-effect of earth's increase in rotational speed. With earth spinning faster, something, somewhere had to give.

The depth of knowledge on this Forum never ceases to amaze. It's truly a wondrous place.

I noticed the '42mm' indication also. Shrugs.

No! You are wrong!
It is because of the weakening of the Earth's magnetic field.

Perhaps you are both right, the K1 has an inbuilt GPS (with compass), but the K3iii does not.......
