    Omega 550 movement

    I have an Omega 550 made in 1962. My watch loses about 13 seconds in a 24 hour timespan. Is this considered too much or the norm for a watch of this age?

    Better than the norm, there are modern watches costing $500+ where that would be within tolerance (+25/-15 is pretty typical for base ETA clones or Seikos).

    For a vintage if it's within a minute that seems normal to me.

    If you want better performance a watchmaker likely could service and regulate it to a better state, or at least get it running fast rather than slow if that's your preference.
