Just my luck. I have 3 watches. My Longines auto is at an authorized repair centre for gaining minutes a day (made a thread about it).
Now my Victorinox Classic Chrono is acting up!
Basically since I've been wearing my Victorinox Chrono quartz, it randomly loses up to a half hour a day! I think this has got to me being negligent and setting it for the wrong time, right?
So I kept re-setting it, thinking I'm insane. Then I caught it. I looked at my watch a few minutes ago and it showed it at 11:05 when it was 11:40. Then I saw the seconds hand. It was still for 3 seconds. Then it ticked backwards and then ticked once forwards. So I was losing about 4-5 seconds for every 1 tick. Then I pulled the crown to stop the time, and pushed it back in. It was fine and started ticking normally again.
It was fine for an entire 24 hours and then suddenly started acting weird. I have never changed the battery on this watch though. Should I get it changed? Or is this a sign of the movement being screwy? I was under the impression that a run-down battery would tick once every 5 seconds but keep the correct time?
Now I'm wearing my Seiko that I've had since I was 14, beat up looking, the only watch I have that works right now!
