  1. NEW SUBMARINER RUNNING TOO FAST ???

    Rolex & Tudor
    So I purchased a Brand new Rolex Submariner 2 months ago. I am aware that Rolex makes their new subs with the -2/+2 calibration. However, it seems that mine is running about +4 seconds fast per day on average, when I place it in the dial up position at night when I sleep. I do wear it most all...
  2. Seiko SKX007 - If i let the watch wind down it will start to run fast 5 minutes a day

    Seiko
    My Seiko SKX007 was running fast about 5 minutes a day. Watching youtube videos and using the Hairspring Iphone app, I regulated it myself. Worked out fine. I usually wear the watch every day. However, if I ever stop wearing it and let it wind down, the watch will start to run fast again by 5...

  4. SARB033 running too fast

    Seiko
    I bought the Seiko SARB033 a few months ago and it has been working flawlessly with losing/gaining ~15 seconds a day, pretty much evening out over the few months. However I had an accident where the watch dropped dial first on tile floor, from maybe 2 feet height. Luckily the glass didn't...
  5. Field Khaki 42mm on black Hirsch strap. Running fast.

    Hamilton
    Got this beauty a few days ago and really liking it. I switched right away to a black strap with white stitching very close to the one featured in Interstellar. I have noticed that it is running about 13 seconds per day fast. Is that usual? I see it has an adjustment screw but my watchmaker...
  6. Strange auto accuracy change

    Public Forum
    Could anyone please explain whats going on here? I got Tissot ETA 2824-2 movement. At first it was about 10 sec/day fast. After a month it s now about 1 sec slow after 2,5 days. Equal wear style all the time... about 1 day full wear and 2 days sitting still but I move it for about 5 mins before...
  7. Does anyone actually have their Orients serviced/regulated? If so, where and how much?

    Orient
    I only ask because these are, in essence, cheap watches. Inexpensive. I once owned a black dial Mako diver (gave it to my father in-law) and currently own a Mako XL and what was once called the Multi-Eye (I believe it has had a name change). Both are over two years old and both are getting slow...
  8. Does anyone do this?

    TAG Heuer
    Hi, I'm new to this site, been reading for a while, but just joined. I was just wondering if anyone ever used the following method to make your auto more accurate. Last month I bought my first decent watch, a Tag AR 500m (WAK2110) from a local AD, to treat myself for a promotion at work. Before...
  9. New Mako XL was fast. A year later it is now slow. Problem???

    Orient
    Hello all, I have owned an Orient Mako XL since the beginning of last summer. I really love the watch and I always get complements on it. One time I even got a complement on it from a Jeweler (who had never heard of Orient) when I was getting a battery swapped out in another watch! My watch...

    Public Forum
    If you had to have your watch set either slightly fast or slightly slow, which would you rather?
  11. Digital watch running fast

    Affordable watches
    I have a Casio G-Shock that is gaining 10mins a month. I thought digital watches were suppose to be very accurate. I've had the watch for about 8-9 years. Anyone know what's going on?
  12. Brand new Seiko 5 running far too fast

    Seiko
    I just purchased a Seiko 5 (mechanical,automatic) and it runs really fast. It gains several minutes per hour. I've looked around and everyone talks about a warm up period of 1-3 months but this seems like it's outside the norm. This also seems like to large of a discrepancy to be fixed by...
  13. Chrono Colt 2 fast timezone change

    Breitling
    Hello folks, Considering buying the Chrono Colt 2 model. On the Breitling website, it states that this model has a "Fast Timezone Change". Can anyone tell me how this feature is activated? How does it know to go forward or backwards 1, 2, 3 or more hours? Here are my thoughts. 1) In the...
  14. Seamaster 2254.50 gains 10sec every minute...?

    Omega
    Hey All, I just got a 2254.50 from the Forum AD and it's fast. Way fast. it's gaining 10 seconds every minute. I checked it against my laptop's clock. In the five minutes since I've synced it's almost five minutes fast. The forum AD suggests either it was dropped in transit (next-day Air)...
