    Which part looks like a woodpecker? I don't see it.

    “We derived the name “woodpecker neck” regulation from the characteristic shape of the spring, which resembles the neck and head of a woodpecker.”

    Re: Zoomed in: Woodpecker fine regulation

    Can most experienced watch repair people figure out how to regulate the woodpecker regulator? I had my SAR regulated once (it was running a little slow), I think they charged me $20. In the last 11 days, it has lost about 9 seconds now, compared to my atomic digital G Shock. I see now on Muhle's site they say they regulate to be 0-8 seconds fast. I don't think it always said that. So, mine is off by less than 1 second a day, and it is worn in a pretty rough environment. I think that is very good. I have a few Citizen quartz eco drives and they are a few seconds to 30 seconds off a month. I also should probably send my older SAR anniversary in for a service. Any recommendations?

    The S.A.R’s woodpecker fine adjustment is adjusted as usual by turning the little fine adjustment screw.

    After I got it regulated, it lost about 9 seconds in 11, 24 hour days. Before I got it regulated, it was about 15 seconds a day slow. It gets jarred pretty hard sometimes at my work. I have been trying to be a little more careful since I got it regulated. It was pretty much keeping exact time before I started working in it again. I just checked it against my atomic again and it is 9 or 10 seconds slow and this is the eleventh day after I set it. I set it exactly 1 minute ahead of the atomic time and now it is about 50 or 51 seconds ahead still.
