Hi,

My Oris TT1 ends up about 10 seconds too fast every 12 hours and was wondering if it can be slowed to by a watch dealer? What's the best I could expect - 5 seconds too fast every 24 hours perhaps?

Kind Regards.

Yes, any watchmaker can regulate your movement. In fact, you can do it yourself if you are brave enough.

You just turn the adjustment screw towards + or - to speed up or slow down the movement. I would bet you can easily get it to within 5 seconds per day. Most of my Oris watches run about +5 to +10 each day.

Here is a picture that shows the adjustment screw.


Just above the jewel you can see the "+" and "-".

Thanks for the reply Chris.

I think I am brave enough. Two questions however: How do I get the back off my watch and how much should I turn the screw?

You need a case back opener do a auction search of "jaxa opener" and you get like a hundred hits.

Get some decent jewelers screwdrivers too...

Be very careful, work in a dust free environment etc...

OK, just ordered some screw drivers and a jaxa opener from eBay. Is there a book or online guide about this sort of thing anywhere? About the screw also, how much should I turn it?

Regards!

It has generally always been too fast. I think it was probably less than 10 seconds in November, but I can't be sure of that. It's always been too fast.

How do I know if my watch has been magnetized?

:roll:

Hi all,

Thanks for your help so far. I managed to find a watch dealer yesterday who could tinker with my watch (without having to send it away for two weeks :roll:)

Anyway, the guy said that it '+/-' screw didn't turn back very far. He turned it all the way back and from what I can see (so far) it's two/three seconds too fast every 14 hours. He said if I want it slower he would have to tinker with it 'manually' whatever that means.

Should I be satisfied with what it is like just now?

I should be happy really. It about 3 seconds too fast now and it's been almost 19 hours. Not bad!


I can live with that! :-d
