    Sweetspot to slow down watches that are gaining speed.. speed

    In what positions do you lay your omega seamaster at night to reduce if the watch is gaining seconds?

    Hi Teammella

    I understand that different watches, different movements, how long since they've been wound, how much, how long ago, & at different stages between services etc may all cause this to vary.

    Having said that, my 2 Planet Oceans (a 2500C & a 2500D) & Railmaster 2503.52 all run their slowest with the crown upwards.

    Here's a little Rolex leaflet from many years ago which might be of some help. Seems to mostly hold true for my Sub & the 3 Omegas mentioned above...

    There is no universal position to slow down or speed up a watch. Despite the Rolex thing people keep posting, each watch is different and you will need to time the watch to find out what the fast and slow positions are. So fully wind the watch, note the time against a known accurate time source, and leave it dial up for 24 hours. Check it against the time source and note the gain or loss. Repeat for all other positions and you will know what positions to speed up or slow down the watch overnight.

    Note that when I service a watch I include this information for my customers so they don’t have to do these checks.

    Cheers, Al
