I use 750 tpd (clockwise onky) and seems to work well :thumbup:

According to the CWArchives, the requirements are 680 / clockwise. This information came directly from CW service.

Yes, I saw that… the only settings on the Barrington are 650 and 750 :problem:

I chose to slightly overwind… perhaps I should try 650 and see if they stay fully wound or slightly lose PR each day…

Thank you! CW are happy to have it back free of charge and with luck it's a straight forward fix like your Seiko 🙌

My C65 is back at CW this morning but look at the name at "Signed for by:" toward the bottom of the screenshot 🤔

Wow, the virus has really mutated if it is now sentient. Too bad it hasn’t mutated enough to improve its penmanship.
