    What are the most accurate watches you've ever had?

    Only three assumptions

    - watch must be automatic/mechanical

    - regulated or unregulated

    - no budget limit

    I don't have a large collection and I mostly buy affordable watches.
    The most accurate watches I've ever had are

    - Parnis portuguese homage (+1 spd, unregulated)

    - Orient Ray II (+1 spd)

    I’ve mostly worked around micro brands and Oris, Longines, etc. I’ve had unexpected happiness from my 2016 Oris Aquis Date at consistently +/- 2 seconds per day. It accidentally got magnetized after walking through the server room at work and hit +15 seconds per day for a weekend. Returned to normal after demagnetizing

    My new Rolex Sea Dweller 50th Anniversary edition with 3235 movement with chronergy escapement. If I wear it 24 hrs a day, I get an accuracy of +0.2 seconds per day.

    Re: What are the most accurate watches you've ever had?

    If you want purely reliable accuracy, don’t go for mechanical. Simply as that, especially if you insist on affordable watches. The first wrist-watch ever certified as Marine (not plain, landlubber’s) Chronometer was an Omega. Quartz as precise, expensive as Omega.
    An $80 Casio G-Shock beats most Swiss certified mechanical Chronomètres.
    Also, a good, well-adjusted pocket watch betters most automatic wrist watches.
    If it’s precision AND value for money you’re after, you’re in trouble.
    Now, if you prefer mechanical rigs (as I do!), just admit they have their limitations, as they’ve long lost the race to precision and/or reliability.
    They are not, cannot be perfect. It’s their charm...

    Re: What are the most accurate watches you've ever had?

    My SubC runs +.5 when I switch out with other watches during the day. If I wear it 24 hrs without taking it off it does better than that (slightly over +.01 per day, or something like that). Seems when I sleep with it on it slows it up a bit.

    Both my 8926OB and my Orient 2ER run about +1.5 per day. Those three are my best.

    My collection may be complete, but it is never completed


    Collection: Rolex Submariner 116610; Seikos Orange Monster, Black Monster, 007 (X2) 009, SRPB53, SPB079, and SRP775; Hamiltons Khaki 42mm and Khaki King; Halios Laguna; 2012 WUS CMW Forum Dual Crown Project Watch; Invicta Pro Diver 8926OB; Casio Pathfinder PAG40; G-Shock GD350, GW7900B-1, DW9052-1BCG. GMW5610-1, DW5600, DW5600CMB-1, DW5900, GW-9400-1CR; Orients Star Classic and 2ER; Some other stuff.

    Surprisingly, my Stowa Flieger 40. It was clocking in at +0.5 to +1 s/d. But some days it would be either perfect or even lose -0.5 s/d. So by the end of a week it would avg +3 sec/week. Beat out my COSC watches.
