    If any of you are on the fence about this model, get out there and get one. You won't regret it. I promise.
    WOW. That’s insane. I’m getting +3.5 dial up, -1.5 crown up, and about +0.5 crown down overnight.

    I think you can guess what position I leave it in while I sleep

    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.
    Here is the excerpt from METAS, I expect the tolerance as tested " Although the COSC may test the precision of the watch in different temporal conditions, the simulation of natural wearing of the watch is never carried out. METAS advocates exactly these test methods by simulating daily wear and tear including test of waterproofness and magnetic resistance." I expect the tolerance given in daily wear, while sleeping ( me that is) and face up, down, etc. Who in the he'll wants to babysit a watch to meet tolerance. The bottom line for me if the watch does not stay within spec while in normal use, return to sender and fix or replace with another brand that meets my expectations, paid to much $$$$ otherwise + babysitting a watch to meet expectations?

    This guy does excellent reviews. His filming abilities are top notch. I've been waning on my decision to order the black dial and considering changing to blue, but seeing his video reinforced my initial choice. I was quoted an end of October delivery. Wednesday is the last day of October. Hoping that my AD comes through.
