So I watched some videos and read a bit about the magnetized watch issue and the process of demagnetizing. Using a compass I checked all my watches and sure enough, one of my Seiko and my Omega made the compass go squirrelly and I assume they are indeed magnetized. I ordered one of the $10 demagnetizers from Amazon and followed the simple instructions from several YouTube videos: watch is stopped, placed on machine then push button for 10 seconds, slowly lift watch up with button still depressed, when watch is at least 1 foot up and away, let go of button. However, my compass is continuing to do the exact same movement. With my Seiko I have tried it three separate times already and there doesn’t seem to any change. I only did the Omega once but the same no change result.
Is it really supposed to work as quickly and easily as the videos? Should I keep trying? Or does it seem like I was simply unlucky enough to get a bum machine?
Thank you in advance for any help!
