    Post your Stowa's accuracy (auto, HW, whatever you got)::

    Probably has been done here before, but wanted to see the most updated results. I am surprised (maybe should not be) how accurate my Airman has been albeit just short of 7 days ownership. I have none, zero, nada experience with auto's hence my curiosity.

    I know results with vary with time/age, position, wrist time vs off-wrist time, etc...

    I set my Airman the day I got it to the Atomic clock (Ft Collins) and after 1 week: +2 seconds. I find this remarkable although my knowledge of ETA movements or autos for that matter is nil. Thank you Stowa!

    Post them if you got them and would love to see some long term results if you have kept them.

    EDIT: I thought this would make it more thorough. Could you list:

    1) make / model / COSC or not / and or calibre
    2) date received
    3) wrist time
    4) position/s when not on wrist - storage (winder etc...)
    5) + or minus per day or week or month whichever you have

    Here is mine:

    1) Airman, no logo, auto, 2824-2 NON COSC
    2) October 16th 2008
    3) every night from 6 PM to 10 AM next day then all weekend (nights inclu)
    4) face up no winder
    5) +2 second deviation from Atomic time after 7 days

    My FO LE #30 runs very, very consistently at +5/day. It started at +6, but settled just slightly. The consistency is beautiful.

    Airman Auto LE #71

    Accuracy is exceptional +5 to +7 sec in 24 hours - well within COSC standard even though this is not a COSC movement.

    Note: This watch is worn in rotation with 5 others so watch is hand wound after reserve has depleted. On the occasion that I wear it for more than 2 days in a row, the accuracy improves to nearly dead on perfect.

    Airman Auto with Date, March 2008
    -0.5 seconds per day

    Seatime, August 2008

    I tend to wear one watch for a week straight, usually 12 hours per day. Resting face up at night.

    1) Airman No Logo COSC
    2) July 2008
    3) 0700-2200hrs most days
    4) Face up
    5) +6-7 secs per day (Went from +4 to -4 secs per day by November 2008 when I sent it back to Stowa to get cleaned an regulated). Will be sending it back soon to get regulated again, as the accuracy of the movement is not what I expected!
