    How accurate is your Nomos running?

    I just picked up a new Nomos club datum dunkel from an authorized dealer and LOVE it. However, yesterday after wearing it around all day it ran 15 seconds fast, and the date doesn't change until between 12:05 and 12:10. Is this pretty normal for a brand new Nomos? I'm just wondering how accurate your Nomos watches are running and if they exhibited a significant break in period before they got more accurate? I feel like a lot of people have been saying theirs runs at about plus or minus 3 seconds per day; was it significantly worse when you bought it new? Glad to have joined the Nomos club either way, just hoping it will get a little more accurate over time.

    Wrist shot goodness:

    I don't really measure it for accuracy often but it's about +5 or less a day (club datum), rarely slow

    The date changes slowly (you can watch the numbers move little by little), it doesn't snap suddenly at 12.

    Good choice! Let it run for about a month to get the best timing out of it! My Orion weiß runs +1,3 s/days....

    It has varied...


    anywhere from +4 to +12 with two incidents where the watch became magnetized and then ran really fast! Still great no matter what, the variations just shows that the watch is mechanical.

    Good to hear guys thanks.

    While were on the subject of Nomos, does anyone have a good recommendation for a deployment clasp for this Nomos? Perferably one that is comfortable to type with and doesnt scratch up my laptop because some of the clasps Ive used in the past have had really sharp edges that arent nice to computers.

    Just got my Ludwig a few days ago and it is running around +18 seconds per day. I'm going to monitor the progress and hope it slows down a bit. I was hoping it was closer to my omega PO which was +4 out of the box.

    My Orion scored last week -1sec/week, don't know about daily variation but this is good enough for me.
