    Du-Du-Du-Du,I Have Entered The Twilight Zone

    On Friday,Aug.21st.after finally getting the bacelet sized on my same day received Sub 800Ti,at EXACTLY 19:25 hours +- 0.00 seconds,I sync'd it with time.gov...Roughly 20 minutes ago I checked it against time.gov to see how it was running.There MUST be mistake I thought after checking the watch aganst the Official U.S.Time, so I checked it again & a third time.3 seconds!In 10 days my Sub 800Ti has gained 3 FREAKING seconds!The watch has spent virtually every waking minute on my wrist except when in bed where it has been on my el cheapo, 8 watch "Bay"winder,or the 3 times I wore my Revue Thomen Pilot Pointer Date to play cards at a few of the casino's in Reno.Is this really possible?Are gremlins resetting my watch while I sleep blissfully unaware of their mischevious prank? OR have those brilliant, mad, horological Einstiens in Switzerland discovered a way to telepathically control the rate at which my watch runs?I will probably never know what diabolical scheme has conspired to deliver a watch with such unbelievable accuracy to my wrist,or if it will continue to run with such amazing consistency,I only know that the watch sell off(22 poor man watches)that funded my grail was the best horological move I ever made!THANKS Doxa!!!

    Wow! That is truly incredible!! My Omega SMP COSC doesn't match that even though it's damned accurate.

    I have high hopes that my incoming GMT will gain maybe 2 or 3 seconds a day. I won't be disappointed if it doesn't but I would LOVE to have a watch as accurate as your 800ti.

    My Doxa Sea Hunter had a run of +/- 0 seconds for 18 months straight!!
    Enjoy! Cheers. Gary

    My 750T Pro runs about -2 seconds a day when I wear it constantly for weeks at a time. Seems Doxa does some pretty good regulating/adjusting before shipping these out!
