    Is plus 6 seconds a day too much?

    I've been monitoring my new Nomos manual wind for a week and it gains a steady 6 seconds a day.
    I'm wondering if I should run to my watchmaker to have it regulated, or give it more time to settle down?

    A steady 6 secs a day is pretty good IMO. Nice movement btw

    Even with a regulated watch I'd be happy at +6 SPD.

    +6 per day seems pretty good to me. I would set the watch slow by 15 secs on Sunday night, and not think of it again until next Sunday night when I reset the time back 42 seconds. ymmv.

    Anyhow, I'd rather have it a little fast than slow. This watch hacks very nicely.

    +6 SPD is within COSC Swiss watch spec so i would leave it. Also depending on how you sit your watch at night it could gain or lose time. Try in different positions as it may lose some seconds at night.

    Mine also runs about the same as yours. Definitely better to be a little fast than slow. Better early than late!

    I definitely would not open up a watch for such a small (and consistent) variance in accuracy.

    Two things.
    1. You said it was a new watch. Give it a little time before taking the time. It can be a few weeks before new watches break in.
    2. As others have said; try different resting positions at night. This chart has always helped me.
