    Sellita SW500 performance

    Iíve had my Sinn 356 for about three months now. The watch ran at about +10-15 sec/day out of the box but the performance has improved dramatically in the last three weeks. It is now running at +1.7 sec/day (average over 14 days since last setting the time).

    Now, Iíve also been working much less on my laptop in the last three weeks. I wonder if the improvement in performance could be attributed to potential magnetism from my laptop?

    Also, I noticed that the watch was gaining 3 sec/day until a few days ago before starting to lose a few seconds. In other words, it had gained about 30 seconds over 10 days. Today, it has gained a net 24 seconds since last setting the time on 11/19.

    Am I going crazy? Is this normal? I was always under the impression that a steady gain was the sign of a healthy movement but the loss over the last few days has baffled me.

    Any ideas?

    It's just settling in, with magnetism of any sort enough to affect the hair spring would cause minutes or hours a day gain.
