mine doesn't actually tell the time very well, and is quite inaccurate,
How many threads on this topic do you want? ](*,)
I don’t know, I think the comment might be warranted. From the photos, it sure looks like most of the SCs in this thread were off by at least 18 seconds! The time wasn’t consistent across any of them.



I’ll get me coat... :escape:

I just got mine. It is the discontinued version with the brown dial, but that's great, because it is the colourway I wanted. I have been a bit unfortunate in the sense mine doesn't actually tell the time very well, and is quite inaccurate, but other than that it is a stunning watch, and has leapt to the top of my favourite timepieces. Well, until I buy my next one of course :D
^ WHINGING again.....seriously dude?? This is your third thread on the topic of "my watch runs within spec, but CW won't regulate it because it runs within spec". You're offside, you lost, move on.

Perhaps you should pay more attention. I have said that it is my favourite watch, that's not whinging. I have come to terms with the fact the second hand spins around like a Dutch windmill

It's running at 20 seconds per day fast right? If it was spot on time, it would rotate 1440 times a day. Yours runs at 1440.33 times a day. Is that really that noticeable?

The argument, somewhat akin to the watch hands or windmill, is going round in circles. :yawn:

The half minute which we daily devote to the winding-up of our watches is an exertion of labour almost insensible; yet, by the aid of a few wheels, its effect is spread over the whole twenty-four hours.

In the windmills of your mind!”

Meanwhile in other news my Black Sand SC bought at a 40% Billy Bargain discount is running at an annoying -2 seconds per day. So the good news is that the average performance of the notorious +20 spd one and mine is +9 spd. Always best to consider a larger sample.
