Seems to struggle when the watch is at 20-22c.

Anyone ever had such issues?

Guess it's off for a service. Also battery was replaced hoping it would resolve the issue.

not an expert but:

- 2s a day seems like normal drift
- when the battery runs out it will do a half-tick back and then forward, so it looks stuck, then it stops altogether. See how it performs after the battery swap.
- 1979 should have open 6&9.
