What you do may not be so important, but it is very important that you do it well. (my variation of a saying by Gandhi)
The UK Greg Wrote:It's a mechanical watch hand assembled and the hands are fitted at the end of the movement manufacture, adjusting the hands to coincide with the date clicking over requires lifting the hands off and moving them by 5 minutes. But why bother? The next service and they may be out by more or less? You have nothing to worry about on either watch!

The UK Greg Wrote:Because it probably would require very careful assembly of the watch in set alignment for a whole series of additional parts. The more parts that require assembly in set and finite alignment require time skill and patience to manufacture and likewise to service. The cost of both being added for owners account and to what end? Your life will not alter one jot with watches whose date does not click over at midnight precisely. It's a mechanical device and not a digital device.
Time is something invented by the Swiss to help sell more watches
