    My Bizarre Timekeeping Comparison Test

    FIRST sorry for the mis-spelled Bizarre lol- I hate u can't edit a title and I didn't notice until I posted the thread.

    Ok I am going to bet this is the first time anyone has ever seen a Patek vs a Stuhrling lol. I have a 1960s vintage PP Calatrava I just had serviced so I wanted to check how it was keeping time. I set it to my Bulova Precisionist which is supposedly +/- 5-10 seconds a year. Well I started thinking, why not test my other hand wound watches as well- As I have reviewed here I recently bought a Stuhrling Winchester Bridge Skeletal (for fun), an Armand Nicolet LS8 (because it is beautiful) lol and so I set all three yesterday at noon. I am winding them all in the morning and a little at night (just in case). Here is how they were fairing today- will post a new pic everyday in this thread showing the daily results for a few days if anyone is interested.

    As you can see all 3 watches are pretty close to the Bulova on day one. And please, don't post BS about me trying to push a brand or sell a watch or some other ridiculous comments.. This is purely for fun! The PP is ALL original- gotta say that's pretty impressive for a 60 year old watch!! I suppose the Stuhrling is impressive considering I paid about $100 for it.

    Nice looking collection you have there. The Armand Nicolet was an enlightened choice...

    The Sturhling looks like it's a couple of minutes fast (looks to be past the 40 minute mark already - but that may just be me misreading it)

    What's bizarre here is the collection, PP vs Stuhrling.... W-WWHAT??

    Just kidding of course, hehheh, your Armand Nicolet is absolutely gorgeous!

    It will be very interesting to see the your results. You do know that timing will vary due positional variance and how you position your watch? Likely to be a bit faster horizontal dial up and slower when set at a vertical position? Also with isochonism depending on how fully wound the watch is through the day? A more accurate test would be in several positions to see how sensitive to position each watch is and extrapolate some kind of average, but that may be a bit too much... The real test will be how it fares on your wrist.
