    PRS 516

    Bought new about 9 months ago grey market and it has always been fast, as in (currently) +68.87 sec per day.
    I have demagnetizer that I've run it over a couple of times, but no change. I do have a few competent shops that do work for me, but I'm not sure about them working on this movement?

    Thoughts?

    If you have already have demagnitized it then there is something mechanically wrong, such as receiving a shock of some sort and the hairspring is stuck or dislodged.

    Since it is a Powermatic80 and you bought it from the grey market, you may want to communicate with the Swatch Group Service Center to see if they will repair your watch even though you bought it from the grey market. If so, then send your watch to their service center to have it repaired.

    - just my thoughts on the subject matter.

    With a Powermatic 80 movement it's not that simple. :(

    I’m not enamoured by the service offered by the grey market repairers so contact Tissot and see if their SC will look at it.
