    I noticed that the accuracy varies depending on the power reserve level of the movements. This is true across a whole range of my automatic watches. Generally speaking the movement will run much more accurately when the power reserve is at a healthy level which means the amp is high.

    Yes mate get your watch fully or close to fully wound by wearing for a couple of days or manual winding then set to the exact second via one of the time websites such as timeanddate.com then place face up or face down and leave for 12hrs then check your time again against the website and double the variance (12h x 2=24) that will give you a reasonable idea of just how accurate your watch is.

    A timeographer would be better but most of us don't have enough concern about fine tolerance accuracy to warrant the spend.

    Typical accuracy is considered good at +/-4 seconds for a new mechanical watch but chrono is expected at +/- 1 sec per day.

    I'm happy if my watches are +/- 10 secs a day as even if wearing that watch 24/7 we are only talking around a minute a week so I could easily go for a month at a time without re-setting and being that I rotate my watches I rarely were any for more than a week at a time so have to set time on each new rotation anyway.

    Cheers, Mark.

    thx for the info. I'm still impressed with movement acuarcy. I usually don't care and actually set ahead a little so I'm within a few minutes every few weeks.

    You're being much too demanding here. The COSC (Contrôle Officiel Suisse des Chronomètres) standard is -4 to +6 (with further requirements on positional and temperature variation). Rolex aims for -2 to +2 on wrist for its "superlative chronometer" designation. AFAIK, no watchmaker claims a +/-1 standard.

    Yeah I was just quoting from chronocentrics published data which gave differing specs for new or "vintage" watches.

    As stated I am happy with +/- 10 secs and some of my watches are barely within 20 and they do me fine.

    It's just another bit of info that is dangerous in our hobby as so many learn about such data and have higher than relavent expectation for their watches.

    I spent days trying regulate a crappy A2813 to anywhere near a 10 sec accuracy and ended up replacing the movement as I just couldn't get it close and was so over it by then that I didn't even try to regulate the new movement once I saw that it was doing within 20 secs.

    I did do a quick iphone app timegrapher check on my OR when first getting it which I think came in at 1 or 2 secs but haven't bothered since.

    Another great YoutTube review on the Ginault Ocean Rover.
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HurBC2IcrFU

    I just love this guy and his very low key but funny style. He has done 4 updates regarding the OR, so just want to spread the word and support this guy.

    "what on earth would I replace this with??" LOL

    Just another pic.

    I believe that there is a date version of the OR with maxi dial and sand lume on it's way.

    More saving required.
