i wore my TRU BLU all day Friday but when i checked the time later that evening, my TRU BLU was about 50 mins ahead. i got home and decided not to put it on my winder overnight and the next morning it was one hour 20 mins ahead. i had a big day planned and i knew i wanted to sport my TRU BLU, so i adjusted the time and took a shower. 20 minutes later it was 5 minutes ahead.
i wore the watch again for the most part of yesterday.. and this time it was running at about 1 hour 40 mins ahead. before heading for bed i checked the watch and it looked like it settled itself down at 1hr 40mins ahead. i wanted to be more certain so i decided to leave it alone overnight. this morning, to my surprise (no, it didn't adjust itself back but) it stayed at 1hr 40mins ahead. obviously in my novice knowledge of horology i concluded that perhaps it "fixed itself" from running too fast.
it is definitely in much better state than it was last Friday, but i probably should take it in to get checked.
anyone else experienced the same? any thoughts on what happened (magnetized, perhaps) and what might be a good fix? anything else to avoid? i have a quad winder and one of my Alpinas is running a bit fast but it has always been that way. the TRU BLU has been pretty spot on for me since acquiring it earlier this year. there's a radio/alarm clock about six inches away from the winder and a lamp. not sure if that would have created any issues but would like to disclose anyway.
