I changed the direction the line slopes. It seem more natural to me that time should progress from left to right, so if the watch runs slow, the beats arrive later than they should, and so they move to the right.

I also checked what a Witschi machine did and it slopes the same way.

I changed the direction
I think it is due to habit. Most timing machines that present the "paper strip" horizontally, if the line goes up, it represents lead. and if it goes down, delay. However, if the presentation is vertical, the classic models if the line rotates clockwise it is an advance and if it rotates counterclockwise it is retarded.
