    Accuracy w/ another watch

    Quick question, my cousin and I both purchased an received new watches recently, a Stowa Seatime and a Doxa Sub750T. While discussing them at lunch on Monday, we synchronized them to exact same time (atomic time).

    Now here's the part I find strange, my watch over the past 5 days has gained about 15sec on the world clock, yet the Stowa and the Seatime remain within .5 sec of each other. Odder yet, each day when we check they are insanely close. In other words, neither seems to fluctuate from the other.

    Is this typical? I understand they both use the same movement.

    Edit: I should add that he and I have very different activity levels.

    It comes down to regulation and watches being most accurate at the top
    25% of their wind.

    I think sometimes, it can be upto luck with the pinpoint accuracy of 2 watches being compared, even though they are very accurate nowdays, sometimes you will get a bigger varience than others, but good to see them performing well.

    Thanks, this is what I was looking for. It's not either s super accurate in terms of the actual time, just that they are super accurate in terms of each other.

    With some watches, as the power reserve runs down, the less accurate they get, ence at full wind, you will find it more accurate than it is at 10 % wind etc etc...

    On an automatic, how long is the power reserve usually?
