I bought this watch in December from a very well respected watchmaker in NYC. After purchasing the watch, I noticed that it would pretty slow overnight even though it was still wound (sometimes 5 minutes). I brought it back to the watchmaker to get it adjusted (1 year warranty). He tinkered with it and said it was good to go.
One week later, the same thing started happening again. I took it back to the guy and he oiled it a little, tested it on the machine (I forget what it is called) and then said it was good to go. However, he said that I should make sure to keep it relatively well wound while wearing it. Otherwise it can run slow. He recommended that I manually wind it at night before putting it down and leaving it crown side down overnight to keep it running on time. He also recommended giving it a boost in the morning when I put it on.
I've been trying giving it a boost in the morning and this morning, even though I wound it about 30 times, it lost over a minute in about 7 hours. I tend to be relatively stationary at work (lawyer sitting at desk), but that seems excessive.
Can anyone give me some advice? I want to know whether I can insist that the watchmaker do a full service on the watch to make sure it works properly or if this is just something I have to live with when it comes to an early model automatic. Also, he noted that it was slightly magnetized when I brought it to him, but from looking online that only seems to make a watch run faster.
