    To demagnetize or not..

    Hi all. Just a question guys...

    I used the Lepsi app and it says my watch is magnetized

    Q1: should I demagnetize the watc even if it keeps great time? (within Cosc) spec

    Q2: Will it be harmful to the watch if you leave it magnetized for a long time?


    Thanks in advance

    If you are getting COSC accuracy, I'd question whether the Lepsi results are correct. In any case though, let it be if timekeeping is that accurate.

    One of my watches was magnetized and was running about 15 seconds fast per day. I got it demagnetized with the cheap blue demagnetizer from eBay and now it is running about 15 sec. slow per day. I wouldn’t try to demagnetize the watch, which keeps the correct time.

    Yeah, the magnetism may be the only thing holding it together. The horrors.
