    SRP779 - Not keeping good time

    Hi All,

    I figured I'd ask here first before diving into all the articles and youtube videos out there. I purchased an SRP779 and it's always been very inconsistent with keeping time. When I wear it, it's very fast, and when I it's sitting it's very slow.

    Any ideas? Any recommendations for having it regulated? Should I just sent it back?

    Thank you!
    Tim

    Sending it to a Seiko service centre is your best bet. Turnaround is around 10 day from experience.

    Dont forget to post your warranty card too.. That way, if it's still in warranty, the repair will be FOC.

    FYI turnaround times can vary greatly. They did a good job fixing my SARB033 but they had it for 7 weeks.

    I have a few others to keep in the rotation! :)

    One of my favorite watches was gone for about that long, it was a sad time.

    Can you please define "VERY fast" and "VERY slow"
    %99 of people do not notice or care whats on your wrist. All that matters is that YOU like what you see.

    It would be helpful to have some idea of the variations we are talking about here. 20 SPD is quite acceptable the me but it would drive some folk round the bend.

    Yeah if it's within spec (-25 to +45 seconds per day) then sending it to Seiko would be a waste of time. They'll just send it back to you.
