Submariner always fast

I have had a Submariner for 8 years now. I bought it new. From the start it has always run fast. In 24 hours it will be 5-7 minutes fast after 48 hours it is 10-12 minutes fast. I have had it serviced at 5 years and it made no difference and the store I bought it from has no idea why it is always fast.

Where did you get it serviced? Are you sure it's not getting magnetized?

Yeah, 5-7 minutes a day fast sounds to me like it might be magnetized..

Anything that shortens the effect hair spring length can increase the speed of the balance wheel, and make the watch run fast.

A good watchmaker will open the case back and diagnose the movement problem; that shouldn't be too involved or expensive to repair.

Maybe time to send it out to another location for service as well

Good luck.
