Not a new user here, but apparently I couldn't remember my proper username and password, so this ID is new. Anyway...
I have two issues with my Sinn U1 I need help/advice with. First off, I've had the U1 for about 5 years, and I wear it sparingly. It's never been banged around, and when i wear it it keeps very good time (+/- 3 sec. per day). The only odd thing is a fairly short reserve time of 30-ish hours.
The other day, I noticed a weird haze or delamination inside the watch between the 4 and 6 hour marks, at the very outer edge of the watch face. Hopefully this will show up in the images. It's only visible from certain angles, and I have no idea where this came from.
The second--and more worrying--issue is that I looked down at my watch yesterday and noticed that the time was off by quite a bit. Long story short, the U1 is running fast at the rate of 15 seconds per MINUTE. Yes, the second hand gets around in approx. 45 seconds! The watch has not been banged, submerged, near a magnet, or otherwise abused. Any thoughts on what could have caused this?
