Not to bump this thread to the top and annoy everyone :D but... A quartz watch movement (most of them anyway) is supposed to operate at wrist temp. It should jeep better accuracy on the wrist.
I could be wrong tho

Hi all...Perhaps I should have done a bit of research on this forum before I bought this watch. Never the less the question I ask is (in spite of failing to meet accuracy claims) does it perform better than any other quartz watch at the particular price range? As mentioned earlier in the thread you can pay a whole lot more for watches that again don't stack up to manufaturers claims. Again on the grand Seiko website you will note how ingenius mechanical additions to their quartz movements ensure that the second hand stops on each of the dial markers each and everytime without vibration. Does it happen in practice? Just ask all the grand Seiko owners with the 9F calibre. AND Seiko DO provide technical information to back this supposed claim. Technical information isnt worth the paper it is printed on if it doesn't actually back up performance..
Ok so its note +/- 10s/year. Is it at least amongst the most accurate in its price range? I should venture to think so. I have a Tissot V8 and you can bet your bottom dollar the precisionist is performing much better. If you want to spend <$500 for an unthermocompensated quartz then don't expect it to perform to the same standard as thermocompensated ones which could cost up to 5 times as much. But if your like me and you dont have a lot of money to spend and just want a great quartz movement within your budget (<$500) than you won't can't go wrong with a precisionist. And the second hand moves 16times per second giving the wonderful illusion of a continuous sweep (better than paying $2000 plus for a grand seiko that won't hit the dial markers)
Sorry just to add. I DO feel for those who have purchased it as a cheap reliable accurate time keeper. I myself am just happy to have a really accurate quartz at a good price Mine's 300metres water resistant, comes with those funky looking Cordura ballistic Strap and a titanium case making it a faaantastic casual/beach/everyday watch. try finding that for $350 Au
"relatively accurate for the money paid" ............ Is certainly one positive way to summarise Precisionist !
If that is acceptable for you then that is great. I am pleased that you are happy with your Precisionist. At the end of the day that is what really matters !
However this is the HAQ forum and many people around here are seriously in to precision regardless of the price point.
The fact that Bulova seems to bombard us at every opportunity with the the 10spy claim causes a problem for some of us who are achieving nowhere near the spec quoted.
My positive outlook on Precisionist is that: "Its a work in progress............hopefully!"
Well, I did buy it as a cheap accurate time keeper...... but mine isn't, accurate that is. Better to get a trimmer-regulated quartz.

"The watch has to be surrounded by a history. You need more than just a great design. You need to create an atmosphere around the product.
Who is the company behind it? Why are they using this material?
People need to be able to identify the watch with themselves. It's based on emotion." - Ralph Furter
I would rather use that money to buy something more satisfying(ina HAQ sense).
Right, and the bottom line is that it's not very satisfactory to see them make these ridiculous accuracy claims for a non-TC movement and with no wearing pattern and even worst that they don't stand by them, but how could they. Basically this is false advertising and I'm sure they could be taken to task legally if someone had enough time and money to waste on it...
