    PO running fast

    5 months....my PO was running perfectly...+/- 1 sec a day..... from the day I bought the beauty....

    But last week I suddenly notice it was 40-50sec later on the watch.....
    So I started to measure from then and it was running 11sec a day too fast. I put my PO away for 2days till it stopped. Then wind up again and now it still running 6-7 sec a day too fast.
    I heard it can be caused by electro magnetic fields.....
    What can I do to slow down my PO ?
    Thx for advice.

    It needs to see a watchmaker...

    Problem is that it's running 6sec to fast which is within specs. So nothing wrong......is the reaction of Swatch (I think).
    Today I took a compass and it was responding a little on the watch....so it's magnetic...but how ? I have no clue....

    At this moment I'm doubting what to do.....it's only 6sec....but it was workingh perfectly.....Maybe trying to demagnatize myself.....

    Do you own a demagnetizer and know how to use it? If not, I'd take it to a watchmaker. Sounds like it got magnetized for sure. Shouldn't be a big deal to have it demagnetized.

    i bet it wasnt magnetized and just needs a regulation

    Yeah, or that. Either way, take it to a watchmaker and either have it demagnetized or re-regulated or both. Neither one should be particularly expensive.

    I also agree. I doubt your watch got magnetized. A magnetized watch will much faster than what you are describing.
    +6 is also still within COSC specs.

    Send it in for warranty work. State the watch is running 11seconds a day. It should never run that fast even if it runs only 6 seconds now you know it will run 11 seconds. When you call Omega service, tell them it's running 11 seconds a day.

    Re: PO running fast

    I think I should sent in yes...when I adjust time it's running 11sec too fast, next day 8-7sec and then 6sec...and this 6sec will continue.
    Thank you all for your comments.
