    +7 Already hasn't been a whole day yet will it settle??

    Recently received my Steinhart ocean GMT and absolutely love it! But came to find out quickly that its running fast... REAL fast,

    I've purchased pre-owned watch is from April of 2015 not sure of wearing time, but this will be my daily wearer My question is will it settle in and accuratize itself as its wearing worn in?

    I've herd of such action.. Is it true? My other Steinhart O1 Green runs +/- 3 seconds per day witch I'm VERY happy with!

    Any input will be appreciated, Many thanks in advance :)

    Just how long has it been? If it's almost a day then +7 ain't too bad.

    Leave it a couple of days before checking the accuracy again.

    +7 sounds good to me too. This has to be better than spec.

    I think it's well past "settling" since it's used. It might settle some more, I suppose" but already at +7 likely not.

    Sure it could change in the future but that could be from many many different factors.

    Do you happen to know how your other watches perform when not being worn? All mechanical watches are subject to some form of positional variance so will perform differently on your wrist compared to sat in one particular position.

    +7spd is pretty good actually, but you said less than a day, and REAL fast.

    Measure it over a couple of days while wearing it.

    Wear it for 3 days, rest it in the same position at night. On its side, crown up or down. Report back.
    Money can't buy you happiness. But it can buy watches.

    Bradjhomes:

    My Steinhart ocean green sits in my watch collection box with the others, and seems to run fine every time even after a complete stop for a few days.. After wind up running great same +/- 2-4 seconds per day!
