    I've been wearing mine almost non-stop since I picked it up on Saturday and it's fast by 5 seconds now... so it's gaining about 1 second per day. Pretty good!

    The number of hours you're wearing it per day, the amount of activity while wearing it, the most frequent resting position while on your wrist, and the position you leave it resting while off your wrist all come into play. I mean, I'd hope that as long as it's relatively wound it would be within METAS spec, but it might be worth a tiny bit of experimentation on your part -

    If you are wearing it a decent amount each day so you're confident it's wound somewhere between 50-100% (METAS tests at 30%, but giving a little leeway) most of the time, have you tried resting it in different positions at night and seeing if there's a difference? Crown up, crown down, dial up, etc? There's always a decent chance that there's a resting position that will cause it to run faster overnight than others which could result in something well within spec.

    It's not perfect, but -1.5 per day would be considered great on almost any other watch including almost any COSC, so if resting position and hours-worn-per-day solves the problem, there's a chance everything is kosher. Worth a try.
    It's on wrist 24h per day. I have it for 3 weeks now. I only put it to rest one time for about 6 hours with dial up... in that position it ran -3 spd.

Clasp is bigger than the original but I donít notice it very much, the micro adjust is very nice and handy on the fly. Overall feels super solid and great quality! The only thing Iíve noticed recently thatís not a huge deal but kinda odd to me, is that near the clasp the half or quarter links donít have the same little polished center pieces that the normal links have. It wouldíve been nicer to have it fully match all the way to the clasp, but perhaps thereís a structural reason for omitting the polished bits. Either way itís not a big deal and not noticeable unless youíre really scrutinizing, but I just saw it the other day. Please excuse my dirty bracelet with water marks haha

    Weird. So if you had spare links, could you replace those strange half and quarter links with normal links to improve the look?

    The quarter link near the regular links Iím sure can be removed, but the ďquarter linkĒ near the clasp is actually the part that connects the bracelet to the clasp, and is actually one solid piece. If you look closely at the piece by the clasp, it is actually one piece thatís been etched to look like the rest of the 5 link bracelet

    This is making my decision to go with rubber even easier

    Haha. I guess so. I honestly still love the bracelet. Thatís just a quirk I noticed the other day. Otherwise itís unnoticeable in daily wear. Although the rubber does look amazing, so Iíd like to have that as an option too. For the price difference I would personally say go for the bracelet, itís an incredibly well made piece of metal! The quarter links arenít a deal breaker for me at least

    Iím just not a fan of bracelets tbh. I prefer leather or rubber. Theyíre just more comfortable to me. Everyone has their own taste/likes :)

    I just came on this thread again to say....I've been wearing this watch daily for a few weeks now and it's terrifying (Halloween is coming, sorry...) how accurate this watch is. It has lost maybe half a second/second TOTAL in the last three weeks. An amazing timepiece.

    If any of you are on the fence about this model, get out there and get one. You won't regret it. I promise.
