    I have 3 of the things and I find them excellent. The one in my ProDiver Date has run continually since February time (it gets more than it's fair share of wrist time) and it's gained about a minute in that time.

    10 seconds...hey that's not as bad as what I got for my wife Aquis date diamond... On her watch it's like 14 seconds.....I have contacted both ORIS Australia and Watches of Switzerland (where I bought it from) to have it regulated. What upset me though is they always try to hide under the claim "Factory tolerance" from the ORIS manual that it should be around -5 to +20 seconds. In addition to that, they always claim... "Hey, it's a mechanical watch....it's not accurate (not even ROLEX)....or hey even my watch is also 14-15 seconds, so yours is good enough...etc etc.." Personally...I accepted Mechanical it's not accurate...I am pretty much tolerance about getting anything from -5 to + 5.....Anything above 10seconds is crap....WHY THE HELL I want to spend thousands to get crap accuracy...may as well spend on cheap skate mechanical. I was happy with my Aquis Chrono (ETA 7750), which has about -2s/day. But this SW200....at 14sec...is crap! I guess this experience thought me something......

    IF I am not wrong....isnt Friend of ORIS in Brisbane??? Try contacting them.....or you can go to Watches of Switzerland?? I think they also have store in Brisbane?? Is your watch on warranty?? Just be ware a bit from my experience.....they always try to hide themselves from the "factory tolerance" rules stated in the manual. Which can be pretty crap performance (-5 to +20).
