curve 8520 not syncing OK with OUTLOOK 2007 - Time Zone problems

I have a BB Curve 8520 with OS

BB Desktop Manager is Version

Desktop PC OS is WINDOWS 7

MS Office OUTLOOK 2007


Time for W7 set to automatic internet update

Time zone for W7/Outlook2007: (-3) Buenos Aires


Time for BB 8520 set to MANUAL (same time as W7 set manually - No network time update)

Manually set BB Time Zone: (-3) Buenos Aires (No auto time zone update)


I do not travel anywhere where I may need automatic time zone change.


The Desktop is set not to sync time from BB with the Desktop PC time.


I set up an appointment in OUTLOOK 2007 at 08:00 hs. When I sync calendar (biderectionally) with the BB, the appointment in BB appears one hour late => 09:00 hs.


If I set an appointment in BB (say 09:00) and sync calendar, it appears in OUTLOOK 2007 one hour ahead (08:00)


If I set BB Time Zone to (-4) Santiago, then both appointment times are the same.


Any clue as to how to solve this strange behavior will be most welcome!


With BB AND DESKTOP PC times equal, and both BB AND DESKTOP PC Time Zone set to the same (say (-3) Buenos Aires), appointment times should be the same in the BB and the Desktop PC.
