    Hour hand adjusted 2 years ago and now is out of alignment again?

    I have a quartz watch, the movement is Swiss Ronda. The hour hand was adjusted 2 years ago and now is out of alignment again.

    Is this related to the movement or what is the problem?

    Thank you.

    I would check if the hand sits tight.

    The watch came out of adjustment since new, then I sent it back to the manufacturer. They aligned and sent it back to me. It was perfect for 2 years and now is out again. If the hour hand was loose, they should replaced it. I am suspicious about the movement, maybe is defective.

    This is why I love my "Defakto einz" watch , it has only one hand :)

    Anyway, it is not an expensive watch, around $300. I can ether send it back for fixing or sell it like it is. I don't know, more watches I add to my collection, more picky I get :)

    Hi there,

    Aliens? Earth radiaton? Cryptonite?

    Honestly, there are many more than these three possible reasons, and even if there would be only one, it requires a fix. So what would it help to list all reasons?

    I'd check the cannon pinion.

    But as Herr Ranfft wrote, there are many possible reasons.
