I wear it almost daily, wind it weekly (usually wind it when the power reserve has 2 days left). I don't shower with it on, exercise whilst wearing it etc. so I'm going to say it's in mint condition. Also, I have been careful to only reset the time during the daytime (when the date mechanism is not engaged).I set my watch to the timeanddate.com clock 10 days ago, and at this point, my watch is fast by approximately 140secs. This seems like a lot to me. Has anybody else had a similar experience, or can anybody advise me of what to do?Thanks

Michael Friedberg Wrote:If I understand you, your watch averages +14/seconds a day fast (that is, 140 seconds over 10 days). That is a little out of range but not hugely off for a mechanical watch (80 seconds over 10 days would be within range).That deviation most likely was not caused by being magnetized as Hebe suggests --it's too small. You can try demagnetizing, but I would try resting the watch at night in a different position. That might help, but if not sufficiently bring the watch in. It can be adjusted to slow down.
