Possibly.I just purchased a Railmaster earlier this month. I synced it two weeks ago with the atomic clock (on a full wind too) and it’s already lost 15 secs. My understanding is a METAS certified master chronometer is not suppose to lose any time. Am I being unreasonable?
I think the "Master Chronometer" claim for the 88xx series of movements is that they average 0 to +6 seconds per day, across all the positions they measure.
So it's reasonable to think "this watch should never run slow". But it's possible that one position may be slower than the others, and so if you have the watch more often in that position, you could have a watch that runs -1 second per day, as yours is, and still be within spec.
My recommendation would be first to relax and enjoy the watch. Even if it's consistently -1 s/d, that is absolutely incredible accuracy.
If that's not possible, and you find yourself bothered by that, my second recommendation would be to time the watch resting in different positions, and find the position where it runs a little faster than the others. You can then rest the watch in that position overnight, so things even out over time.
Oh, and post a photo! The Railmaster is one of the most beautiful watches around. I hope you can get to a place where you are unreservedly enjoying yours.
Good luck! I hope it all goes smoothly and it comes back to you quickly, and running well.We are on day 9 and it’s 21 secs behind from when I synced it. Off to Omega it goes. Face down it is +2 secs, all other positions it ranges from. -8 to 0.

Great shot! Really shows off that dial nicely.View attachment 17407768
Back home after a 10-day vacation. This isn't my travel watch, but it seems like it's the first one I reach for when I am reunited with the watch box.
Looks great!! I really need to throw mine back on the bracelet soon.
Yeah, I’m really warming up to the bracelet. Looks great and is really comfortable.Looks great!! I really need to throw mine back on the bracelet soon.
