I recently gave a new watch to my friend for their birthday. However, as usual with my presents, it was quite useless, as it gains 6 minutes every hour. I set it using my own accurate clock at midnight, and the watch now shows 8:26 am. I know that it stopped 30 minutes ago, so what is the correct time now?
