    WHich is currently the most accurate mechanical watch in the world?

    How accurate is it? For example running for 21days of 3 weeks.

    What is the second differences?

    My Daniel JeanRichard - it runs just over +3 seconds for a period of just under 5 days.

    I timed my Breitling Superocean Steelfish at +2 seconds in a week a while back. But I think accuracy varies due to position.

    I would imagine the Seiko Spring Drive watches would be near top of the list.

    With the exception of the Seiko SD which is electronically regulated, there is no one mechanical watch model which is consistently as accurate as any other. The best you can do is a COSC certification, which puts it within -4/+6s on average. Note this is not guaranteed, just on average. Obviously exceptions occur often, as many lesser movements can be more accurate than that. Bottom line, if you need accurate, get a quartz. If you get a mechanical, it will perform within its specified range, which is way less accurate than a high end quartz.
    Lots of dive watches.
