    Break in period for a new EZM 3 movement

    Hi all - got my new EZM 3 yesterday and in the first 24 Hrs
    it ran roughly 1 minute fast. Is that normal and does a
    movement "settle in" over time?

    Cheers, JB.

    That sounds too fast for a new watch. Typically, a new automatic watch is set about +4 secs/day at the manufacturer. Then it will drop down over the first few months of use to +2 to +1 secs/day. COSC is +6 to -4 secs/day.

    Thanks Steve - just talked to Rob at WB and he mentioned it was a bit too early to evaluate the rate of Loss/Gain and sent me to the page for a seven day test (WB FAQ) to be performed in about 9 to 12 weeks.

    Cheers, JB.

    One minute a day is way too far out of line to expect it to "break in" over time. If you follow instructions and wear it every day, you end up with a used watch. I would give it another day, and if it is still that far off, send it back and get another watch.

    I bought a new EZM3 about six moths ago and it never ran anything like that. It definitely runs within a few seconds a day. I would send it back for a replacement.

    I'd be amazed if it got anywhere near acceptable from +1 minute.
    It's not right.
