How fast or slow does your watch run?

Itís been quite a while since this question was asked
But since the +2-2 has been does your watch stay within that range
My watch is -15 seconds per the month

19 year old 16710 with a recent service is running at -2 @ 290 amplitude along with a 13 year old LV running at +6 with 300 amplitude that’s never been serviced last I checked.

Not even a month since this type of thread came up, you should give it a search first.

I don't have a timegrapher so these numbers are just my visual observations using the Watchcheck mobile app:

My 2019 SubC with 3135 movement: about -1 s/day
My 2019 DJ36 with 3235 movement: about +1 s/MONTH

The new gen movement rocks!

Accuracy of my watches depends on how they are worn/stored. They are all sufficiently accurate although I am far less tolerant of slow running than fast. I don't get consistently +/- 2 except from my Tudors. But I am fine with the way they run.

When worn, my DJ41 gains maybe .5 seconds a day. When at rest, it loses 1 - 2 seconds a day.

I have a 2004 114270 that was serviced and it is about +5 per week! The thing runs amazing and is my favorite watch.

Recently noticed my speedmaster is running about 2mins per day fast! I don't usually wear each watch more than a day or two so never really noticed until I timed it over the last couple of days.

I think it might be magnetised so have bought a demagnetiser to check it out.

My daily worn Daytona C is currently 0.423 seconds slow each day.

Sub C was 0.64 fast per day when it was worn daily.

My 1982 5513 has been running continually for 37 years without service and over those 37 years has gained .00000009999998 of a second.Checked against 12 atomic clocks, and now have 24 different phone apps, plus 13 timograph machines which are accurate to 0.000000000000000099999999999 of second.

My 1.5 year old DJ41 performs like this as well. Regardless of whether it's gaining or losing, the amounts are so negligible it's never more than -1 or -2 / +1 or +2. More than satisfactory.

Bear in mind, I rarely check the timekeeping performance: usually after DSL reset.

I don't know, I never check it. Seems to be accurate.
