So I tried doing a search, because I've read about this problem on the forum before, but it was difficult sifting through the countless threads on G-shocks.
Basically the other day I took my watch in the pool, and then without thinking, ran it under very hot water after getting out. Immediately alarm bells started going off in my head. About an hour later I did a time test of my watch. The watch, which had been gaining an average of 3 seconds a day, had gained 5 seconds in the past hour. This morning when I woke up it had gained an additional 18. Nothing major, but for a few weeks it had been working so well. Have I blown it?!
So I know the remedies for other watch problems, such as magnetization, but I don't know the remedy for this. What should I do? Take it to my jeweler? Give up hope? Sacrifice a goat to the watch gods in the hope that they will have mercy on me?
All your responses are much appreciated.
