Have you wound it really good?

Do you wear it daily?

+30 seconds in ten days ?
+3 seconds a day = good
Unless you meant +30 seconds a day, which isnt really.

Yeah.... 3 seconds a day is acceptable.. however, +30 a day is way off.. if its only 10 days old, take it back to get looked at asap!

+3 seconds a day is well within the cosc specs (-4/+6 per day) and you should probably give your watch about a month or so to settle and whatnot.

Mine was running 10 sec fast and my AD had it fixed in about 10 mins. Take it to your AD and let that watchmaker do what he does best! (or she...sorry Watchmakeress :oops:)

:thumbsup: Thank you!

3 seconds a day is really phenomenal, and you should let no watchmaker touch it! Like being said, your watch will most likely slow down after it's settled in. Give it about 3 months. If it stays within the COSC specifications, don't touch it! No reason to fix something that isn't broken.

yeah I agree.. +30secs in 10 days is fine. Most of my watches gain around 1 minute a month. Some are within 15 seconds after a month.. I don't even remember anymore.. I swap my watches so often now that I can't keep track if one runs down.
