    My Polluce has started running fast... ??

    I have my Polluce in my rotation w/ my Sinn U2... and up until the past 2 weeks, or thereabouts... it's been running great and keeping great time. Now, however it is gaining about 25-30 seconds every 24 hours. Not really very good.

    I don't recall any bumps or being around anything that might magnetize my watch... so not sure what could have happened. I could always open up the back and give it a slight regulation (have worked on watches as a hobby for a while) but I don't have any pressure testing data and don't really want to open this watch up if not necessary.

    Any ideas how this could have started gaining so much time?

    How accurate are your Anonimos watches?

    Sounds like it just needs to be serviced. My D-date ran +15 seconds in a 24 hour time when I purchased it, and now it is ~20 seconds within a 24 hour period. It is time for my watch to be serviced since it is going to be 5 years old. If I were you, I would send it in to get it corrected.

    Who should I use for service? I don't know any local watch-smiths here in Tulsa OK that I would use... never had a watch serviced before. Should I send it somewhere in the US?

    Any suggestions are appreciated.
