I have a six year old SARG003 which I have been happily wearing for a large chunk of that time, so starting to get on a bit in age.
Lately the accuracy has started going a bit - losing around a minute a day. For me this is slipping past the 'still usable' band into the 'what use is a watch if i need to reset it every day' end of the scale, so it is time it got a bit of care.
Here is where I want to ask a bit of advice from those more experienced than myself - I know I can get it regulated, but with a six year old movement, will this be worth doing if it is starting to get worn out, and will it just quickly start drifting again? Option two would be to get it maintained properly - cleaned, lubed, regulated and brought back to a good working condition, which will be more expensive. Option three was questioning whether it is worth spending the money on a service for a relatively basic movement, versus sourcing a new movement and swapping it out?
It is really a question of what is practical and cost effective - given the watch wasn't hugely expensive in the first place, to do much work doesn't seem economical, however I would much prefer to keep the watch going rather than writing it off and replacing it (especially since they do't make them any more, and I have yet to find anything I like better...).
So any advice or thoughts?
