I am a new Christopher Ward member having received a C60 Trident GMT 600 for Christmas (Thank you Mrs M). Unfortunately as much as I love my new watch it is loosing just over a minute a day, which is outside of the 20 seconds a day tolerance. The Covid19 situation has put a hold on me returning my watch for inspection/fixing etc and I am concerned the regular adjusting is putting excessive strain on the crown/parts involved.
Hopefully I wont have much longer to wait for the service/repair dept to open now..

Loosing a minute per day is an indication that it may have become magnetised (usually runs fast, but can also run slow).

Worth checking with a Compass.

Hi. running into a similar issue with my few month old c60 gmt. losing more and more time daily, now ls losing almost a minute a day.

I checked with a compass, the case back move the needle slightly, but I am not sure if that's just the stainless steel. Does anyone on here have experience degaussing with those cheap blue boxes?

thanks
