    Quartz Watch Time Racing

    Hi All.
    I wore my Zodiac 1882 Sea Dragon Quartz today. When I got to the office is was about 10 minutes fast. I reset it and timed for an hour. It seems to be running
    about 15 minutes fast an hour. Interesting thing is when I put it on this morning after it had sat on the dresser for a week the time seemed normal.
    A new Renata battery was installed about a month ago. Anyone have an idea of what gives?
    Thanks for any and all help.

    Yes I am a musician.
    Are waltzes played in 3/4 time?

    Never owned a quartz that performed the way your watch did.

    Quartz watches get magnetized? It's new to me.

    Re: Quartz Watch Time Racing

    At one time I changed battery in one of my watches. I immediately noticed that the second hand was ticking much faster than every second. I removed the battery, then replaced it again. This fixed the problem and the watch works fine since then. Is it possible that the same thing happened in your case?
    The movement was Ronda 715 on my Traser.

    O.K. all, I reset the watch 2 hours ago and is now keeping perfect time. Maybe I should find an exorcist?
    samael_6978 - I would have thought it would have happened immediately, so I just don't know about this one.
    Thanks for the thoughts.

    What was the approximate relative humidity when you installed battery?

    Unsure of humidity, my weather station was on the fritz that day. I do remember it was dark outside.
    Possibly a waxing/waning moon snafu?

    Static discharge is the most common cause of otherwise inexplicable quartz errata.
