So I bought my first mechanical watch about a month ago. It's been running great. I've found out that if I turn the watch to engage the rotor a couple of times each time I put on or take off the watch it stays wound up very well and the watch stays within an accuracy of +-1 second. The last week I tested this I found out that my watch hardly skipped a beat. In those 7 days it was within a second, impressive.
Unfortunately that precision does not apply to the date window. Am I being too picky here? I've done a little bit of research and from what I've read, it seems my watch may have a misprinted date wheel as the alignment alternates between being too high, just right, too low, and then just right again. The ones that are too low go pass what I think should be the tolerance because you can even see part of the next date in the rotation. What do you think?
I did buy this from an authorized dealer and I have worn the watch. Should I go back to the dealer and have them send it off to Oris? Or would it be better for me to contact Oris directly?
