This is amazing ....

Last Friday, I received my 750T Pro in FedEx from DOXA. You may have seen my earlier thread showing (eventually ...) the first pics ....

Anywho ....

I got home Friday eve, adjusted the bracelet, set the time (hacked to the second with the atomic wall clock in my kitchen), gave her a few turns to start the motor, then strapped 'er on.

I've yet to remove it from my wrist since .... nor have I adjusted the time / date. Do you know that this thing is at +/- 0 (that's ZERO) seconds off? Not a few seconds slow, not a few seconds fast .... dead-on to the atomic clock. No gain or loss ..... at all.

I'm wondering if DOXA unknowingly sent me a regulated and adjusted COSC by mistake .... ;-)

This is absolutely amazing to me ... most of my collection is centered around Seiko's (love 'em!), but without exception, all of them "drift" a few seconds either way. Even my two G-Shock's, once set to the second with each other, have drifted two seconds apart. Not this puppy though; she's dead-on. Wild ......

How 'bout it Friends .... are your beauties keeping immaculate time, or are you noticing the drift of a few seconds? Am I one of the lucky few that gets a dead-on 2824?

In case you don't know the watch I'm talking about, here's (another bad) shot ..... thanks for reading my slightly insane ramblings ... :-!

All of my 750Ts with 2824s are 5-7 secs / day off. Pretty pleased with that. My GMTs with the 2893s are more along the line of 2-3sec/day. You just got lucky..........Punk.

I do think that either the 2824 or the 2893 could be regulated by the right watchmaker to +/- 1 sec/day............

My Sub 750T is the most accurate watch I own as well. I just checked mine and it was 4 seconds slow of the atomic clock. I set it last around 3-4 weeks ago. None of my COSC watches are anywhere near as accurate. Here is my scratch magnet.

Don't be too disappointed in a month or so when your watch "settles in" and goes out a few seconds one way or the other. I'm not saying it will, just that it can and many do.

For me my Mil Sharkey is +5 seconds and the T-Graph is -4 seconds. No issues at all here i can live with this.

Smurfe as for the COSC watches not close to your Pro if they are still in warranty period I would send it back to get regulated. No reason a watch certified should be off what the specs of COSC should be. My Omega is +1 second which for what it's worth has not had any wrist time since Doxa came into the mix. enough rambling for now.

take care

Its a very reliable movement, I have the same movement in my Millimetre and it is extremely accurate. Both my doxas and others with this movement are as spot-on as my Planet Ocean. The PO is more sensitive to the winder and/or how it is set on the watch case.

good stuff

my 2824 Tissot was regulated and is now dead on as long as I'm wearing it. It'll gain a couple seconds a day if I let it just sit.

All my DOXAs are within +/- 5s each day too, so I am pretty happy with their performance. Hence, I don't think I would pay extra for a COSC model (not that the movements are plentiful anyways, so I probably won't get a chance).

My GMT Caribbean has been consistent at +2-3 secs per day since I bought it about a month ago! I'm very pleased with it.

When I got my 750T in January, it gained 29 seconds in the first 7 days, so approx. 4.1 seconds a day.

During the next 28 days it gained 81 seconds which is approx. 2.9 seconds a day.

Now after six months it is doing nice + 8 seconds during last 26 days, that makes + 0.3 seconds / day, I really couldn't hope more from a mechanical movement.

As can be seen, the watch takes quite a time to settle down, and if it is very accurate as new when you get it, it might not be after it has broken in for some months.

Yikes! :-s

Smurfe, how on earth did you manage to get all those scratches? :think:

The settling of a new watch can vary greatly though. I've had some that did not change much, others more than 10 seconds difference. Then again, the more watches I've added to the collection, the less often I've worn each, and the less I've checked the accuracy of each.

Well, not to belabor, but this is day 10, and she's still dead-on ... no loss. I'll keep a weather eye, and see what happens.

The observations about the motor "breaking in" and settling down are well taken, so we shall see. So far, I am quite pleased (and astounded!). :-d

As for the comment about "you get what you pay for", I'm quite happy with what I paid for; I'm just pleased that she's this accurate, straight out of the box.

Now I'm thinking Sharky ...... :-! (Don't tell the wife ....;-))

I am very glad for you. I also have to agree, you get what you pay for and you have definitely gotten your money's worth. What a great watch. I was just wearing my 750T Pro this evening and forgot how much I love that watch. One thing, I have switched to a GMT bracelet. For me, it is well worth the extra cash.........

Just regular everyday wear. Mostly from work. I am a firefighter/paramedic so I get in some less than casual situations. I have dove/snorkeled a few times with it. Fishing, etc.

Actually my camera picks up the scratches very well. If you look at it on my wrist, you don't see those scratches and it looks basically new on my wrist. That is a pretty close up macro shot. They are there though.

None of my COSC watches are still under warranty. When they were, they net specs but just barely. It actually isn't an important factor to me. I am just amazed that my Sub has been so accurate out of the box and continues to keep great time after these months of fairly hard wear. I didn't pay for the specs but thus far I have them. If it falls out of that spec range I won't gripe any.

I think it looks great!! Just shows that you wear the watch and it does not sit in a safe..........;-)

So, what is the "acceptable" range of accuracy for the 750T GMT's. Had mine for about three weeks now, worn daily, and it seems to be running at -10 secs/day.
