I'm about as far from an HP48GX expert as you can get, but I'll have a go at your questions. If I get anything wrong, Iím sure others will correct me.
Regarding pull-down menus vs. soft keys, I was under the impression that in general, if you press left-shift instead of right-shift to access a menu, you get soft keys instead of the drop-down menu. For example, pressing left-shift 4 brings up the soft-keys DATE, ->DATE, TIME, etc. I don't know if this exactly mimics the SX behavior, but I think it is close.
Regarding "CLOCKADJ", on the 48GX it is "CLKADJ", and it behaves the same as you describe for the SX. "CLKADJ" is on the third "page" of soft keys that pressing left-shift 4 brings up. One second is 8192 ticks. I think your "KORR" program (using the "CLKADJ" command) will work just fine.
Regarding keeping all your watches and clocks set so closely, presumably synchronized with the correct time, well, I see nothing wrong with that. Come to think of it, my life is pretty disorganized, and my wife thinks I'm nuts (about that and many other things), so perhaps there is a connection....
