Is your Automatic Watch Running Fast or Slow?

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

 

I like all things mechanical, so it was only a matter of time (pun) for me to get into Mechanical/Automatic Watches.

 

For the last few months I have been using an Automatic Orient Watch, but I have been noticing that it ran 2 minutes fast every 24 hours.

 

I made a video on how to adjust or regulate the escapement:

 

 

Support to my YT channel is greatly appreciated, since it helps me pay for my Student Debt, Truck Mods, and now Watches as well

 

Cheers

No matter what you do, you're still running out of time.

Old Japanese proverb:  Man with two watches never know what time it truly is.

You only get a certain resolution of adjustment per "click", so it's likely that an automatic watch will always be a little off.

You can go further and change springs... but if you need that level of precision, use a quartz watch.

Interesting subject, I have never had an automatic watch but I am partial to the Citizen eco drive watches of which I have 4 and they have always kept the correct time. I guess the only down side is if they don't get enough light they don't work properly!

I have a bunch of Eco-Drives as well, they're perfect. 

 

But a mechanical watches are so much more interesting, in the Same way that we will still have V8s when Electric Vehicles take over
