One way that this manifests itself is that when I get a new watch, I time it. Daily. For a few months. With results saved in a spreadsheet. I don't worry too much about the results, I just like to know that the watch's characteristics and that it is running well.I've had my VC AT for almost a month. Since I last reset it to a reference time source (fhs.ch) on August 19, the net time deviation up to last night is a total of 0 seconds. That's a net figure -- there have been days when it has gained a second or two and days when it has lost a second or two but overall it's dead on. Not bad for a watch that probably isn't yet fully settled in. It seems that the calibre 80111 is an impressive piece.I'm trying to train myself to accept larger daily variations so that when I get a Ref 5001 I don't get upset if it gains 8 or 9 seconds/day. I love the look of that watch (and of the movement) and want to be able to enjoy it. This darn 80111 isn't helping to lower my expectations. :)
Live long and prosper
