What is an acceptable level and range for the Beat Error values on a new Seiko. I got one of those new Seiko 5's yesterday with an automatic movement(4R36A) that hacks and manually winds. It's a nice watch(SRP165K1), but the Beat Error values range between 0.9 and 1.4msec, for the six usual positions. (I have a Timegrapher 1000, in case your wondering how I know this.) I'm thinking this value of Beat Error on a new watch is high, although the range of variation seems not so bad. The positional error is also high at +12 sec/day dial up, -15 sec/day crown up, and -9 sec/day at 6'oclock up.(I'm left-handed, and wear the watch on my right wrist.) I would welcome any comments/advice on this. I can still return the watch. Should I return it ,or is this acceptable performance? Thanks in advance!
