Hi all,

Is it ok in terms of mechanism strain if you rest the big chrono seconds on the 10h (just let it run for 50 secs and never reset)? So not reseting on its resting position.
Does this put the watch in a weird engaged position and the mechanism won't like it in the loooong run?!

It just look a bit better if it sits there.. not a big thing if its not a good idea..

Thanks

disclaimer: While i do this with my speedy (only 5 months old), i do not know whether or not it causes any ill effects.

Sounds from what others are saying it doesnt mess anything up.

Hello guys,

I have the same question but I would appreciate a more serious / documented answer. My Speedmaster runs at almost no error when resting 3 o'clock up. I tend to wear it about 12 hours/day and then leave it resting until next morning. Just wondering whether the "non-conventional" resting position would have any adverse effects on long term - I'm thinking, amplitude changes, excess stress on jewels, possible lubricant migration, etc.
