    Crown up or crown down to slow down movement.

    My sons new Ray is running 15 seconds fast. Is there a conventional wisdom on how to rest watch overnight that will slow down movement? By the way I am blown away by the look, feel, and build quality of the watch. I thought my Hamilton was good value for the money. Not even close to the Orient.

    Depends on the watch , you'll have to take a few evenings to work out one that suits your needs

    Re: Crown up or crown down to slow down movement.

    Mine runs slow and crown down seems to speed it up some so I would imagine crown up would slow it down. Also when new, mine ran slightly fast but after a period of time (month or two), it slowed down to where it now loses 8-10 seconds a day. If I place the watch crown up, it loses 12-15 seconds a day so it appears to make a difference.

    How accurate is your Hamilton? I've considered one as I would like a hack movement. Ideally it would be nice to have a hack movement watch that ran slightly fast and then I could just pull the stem to freeze the movement for the required amount of time.
