I have found my Lunova Tag/Datum runs a tiny bit fast (gained 45 seconds over 10 days, so like yours), but I bought it new only 1.5 weeks ago. This isn't the first new watch that I have had this with.
If you really want to know if it's running correctly, take it to any watch maker who has a timegrapher, they can tell you how how "healthy" the movement is (gaining or losing seconds per day, in different positions) without opening up the watch. However, new watch movements are supposed to have a "break-in" period, similar to a new car, before they "settle down". Some say a week, others say a month, so I wouldn't take it to have it checked for at least a month (unless you are losing/gaining a lot of seconds per day).
The Muhle Glashutte watches I’ve owned were overall the most accurate of any brand personally experienced. They were all ranging from +1-3 seconds/day. The Panova Blau (a keeper so far) runs +1-2 secs over 24 hrs whether worn or not. There truly is something special in their woodpecker neck regulation.
In the 2018/19 catalog I have it’s mentioned on page 134, “Why our watches are always slightly fast”. They explain (to paraphrase) that every Muhle watch is tested in all six positions and that their patented fine regulation facilitates the particularly sensitive adjustment of movement to achieve maximum precision. They specify “One of the key aspects of our corporate philosophy is to ensure that Muhle watch wearers are never too late because of their timing instruments. Being a bit early is more polite than turning up late, which is why we regulate our watches so that they are always slightly fast”. Kudos to Thilo and his marvelous team!
I always explain to my watchmaker that my watch error needs to be positive..love their mantra
Just sticking with the case finish of the SAR.. even though it's advertised a Sand/Bead Blasted it seems to be more of a matt finish!! Any thoughts from other owners on this?
