    Could be that the moisture absorbing pads are causing the internal humidity to be inconsistent. After this October cycle I'll try doing without them. See if it improves anything.

    I posted more information here: https://forums.watchuseek.com/f385/d...4896979-3.html, post #26 if I remember correctly. It took about a month to make and a year to get working properly. Somewhere in there I retrofitted the winding mechanism.

    That would be my guess, although the fact that you replace the pads AND wind it monthly couples the two causes and one may mask the other. Eliminating the pads would be my first attempt but you could wind it say maybe twice a month and see if the deviation follows the winding period or the pad-changing period.

    That ain't a double, I just like to stutter.
