    Regulate the MO

    My Marine Original has always run fast. I was hoping it would settle in but it runs about 90 seconds fast a day. Can it be adjusted to get better accuracy or do I have to live with it the way it is? I do love the watch though.

    You should have it regulated by a responsible watchmaker or send it back to Stowa for regulation. Some of the MO watches run with astonishing precision and accuracy. +90 is way out of specification for the well-crafted movement that drives the MO.

    How long have you had the watch? Mine took a couple of months to get the kind of accuracy it now gives me. Having said that, while it always ran fast (see FAQ on this forum for discussion on this issue) it never ran +90 sec./day. These movements are capable of great accuracy. Agree with Inlanding that you should take it to a competent watchmaker for adjustment in the event you don't wish to return it to Stowa.

    I will take it to a reputable watchsmith. I have had the watch a little over a year and a half.

    Unhappy Re: Regulate the MO

    I got my MO back from the watchsmith. It had a broken hair spring. I am going to see how well it keeps time now and will let you know. I have the bracelet on it and it looks great.

    My MO is now keeping fantastic time. About 6 seconds in a week slow. I am loving it with the bracelet. I knew this watch was capable of keeping great time.
