I have no clue what my watches run at nor do I care unless they are several minutes off per day. Watch accuracy will vary for multiple reasons some out of your control. A watch may be within specs one day and outside specs the next and back within specs the next.

Watch was running slow. No positive resting positions. AD regulated, and then it was fast, no negative resting positions. Sent to RSC, still ran a little fast, but pretty close to spec. Still no negative resting positions.

The latest regulation looks pretty good.

Have to agree to a point but while some read on internet forums that some have watches that have not lost or gained for months.Then the worry syndrome kicks in as perhaps there watches are + 2 to 4 seconds a day so they download watch timing apps.Then the constant checking time kicks in,next it will be the use of high magnification and purchase of a loupe. Then after exploring dial and watch for the minutest detail the {CCLS}kicks in, constant checking with loupe syndrome.Just another worry to take out the enjoyment of owning and wearing a Rolex watch.

+1 second / MONTH.

I bought my gmt from Bobs. They told me that they clean and overhaul every watch before selling it. I was skeptical, but the watch works perfectly!

Here are my two Rolex's. My DJ is in need of service. It is 35 years old. How accurate would you expect it to be after I have it serviced?

Of my 12 Rolex watches (all modern references between 2003-2019) vary between +2.1 and -3.5 seconds per day, worn on the wrist all day and all night, no night time corrective positioning. Three of them average +- 0.4 SPD or better, and all but two of them are within the +2 -2 spec Rolex claims. The least accurate is an 114060 bought almost exactly 12 months ago which looses -3.5 SPD.

All but one of my non Rolex mechanical watches are outside of the +2 -2 accuracy spec set by Rolex.

I donít have any 35 year old Rolexes, but the two I have had serviced so far were over 10 years old and now run -1.0 and +0.3 respectively (both are 3185 movements)

Well from most accurate to least accurate:
2 LE 9F GSs: I haven't seen them off by as much as a second in several months of ownership. Rated at +/-5 sec/year
Non LE 9F GS: Easily within 1 sec/month, although I never see a need to time it.
I use the above to set my Swiss watches.
2018 DJ, is - 3 sec/day
2018 Bluesy is pretty much spot on. Never put it on a Time-o-graph but it appears to keep up with my 9F movements
2019 TT Daytona; don't have a clue as it is brand new.

Given its experience the DJ is the only one I will time check when I put it on.

SubC runs -9 sec per month or 0.27 sec slow a day. Most accurate watch I own.
