    Resting position to lose time

    What is the best position to rest a 2824-2 powered Stowa to lose time?
    I’ve been lucky to get a Stowa TO2 that seems consistent to a Fault. No matter what position I rest it, it gains between 4.4 to 4.2s a day. No matter what I do. I suppose this is within chronometer specs but still....

    With my less good watches, I could count on positional regulation.

    Usually crown UP would be the "slower" position. If it's really a problem, have it regulated further. Sounds as though it could be dialled-in nicely.

    Crown down 4.7s a day crown up 4.2s a day. That’s almost a humble brag in adjustments

    Tell this to people who disparage ETAs in favor of ‘in house’. Those numbers are awesome.

    +4 right out of the box is perfect and especially so given your watch's stability of rate. After a few number of of months you will see it start to "age" (slow), so at +4 your watch should be good for maybe a year or so before it goes "-".

    Enjoy your watch. Heb
