I mean monthly ?

Should I see that in seconds or in minutes ???? :roll:

Any Seawolf Avenger owners here ?

PS: I wear mostly on tuesday - thursday - saturday etc....
So 1 day a quartz and 1 day a mechanical watch etc....

Each evening I give it aprox 15 winds by hand. ( I don't keep it on a winder )

Thx Rod !
I bought mine end december.
Adjusted it on 1 january 2007 and today it has lost 1 minute and 35 seconds ????

But I'm not sure if I have stopped the hands by accident ( because I wind it every two days)

Anyway, I adjusted it again today...:think:

Are here other AS owners, who can tell me about the average accuracy per month ?:-s

I'm aware it is no quartz, but hey, it's a high end mechanical wath, so....???

Hey Marc:

I was just curious, why do you manually wind it every couple of days?
If you are not wearing it I can see why, but if you are, then there's no need to.
If you are not wearing it, consider a watch winder. You can pick one up off the 'bay that looks nice and is relatively cheap, and that's where I keep my SW when its not on my wrist.
I also don't like to manually wind my watches if I don't need to.
I could see that if you are pulling out the crown and stopping the movement every couple of days where you might lose a minute or two.
Try it on a winder without manually winding it and see if you lose time. :-!

Enjoy! :gold

Wel, a certified watchmaker advised me NOT to buy a wonder because it's no good for the movement....
He said, when you only have a few mechanical watches, it is much better to wind them by hand.

These are HIS words; I do not know if it is 100% correct, but he's a certified watchmaker so I presume that he knows what he is talking about.

And yes, I have ( so far :-d ) only one mechanical watch, and the rest are quartz.

I give you an example:

Monday: Breitling B-1
Tuesday: Breitling Avenger Seawolf
Wednesday: Tissot T-touch
Thursday: Breitling Avenger Seawolf
Friday: Seiko Worldtime
Saturday: Breitling Avenger Seawolf
Sunday: Breitling B-1
etc...

So I wear the Seawolf every 2 days. Got it ? ;-)
