By way of update.. just got it back off Nomos after sending her in.. it's now running between +20spd and +30spd.. Checked with a compass incase it got magnetized during shipping but alas not. I'm beginning to think maybe they rushed the swing system out of the door...
Update number 2 - after a run through my demagnetization it's now running -6spd. Maybe it was magnetized in transit slightly but not enough for the compass test?

Tangente, +3s/d, but its never really bothered me as it's not a daily driver.
I've managed to magnetize my Club Neomatik as well, the combination of a metallic hairspring and a very thin case makes this a pretty easy watch to magnetize if you have, say, a magnetic clasp on your bag for instance.
However after demagnetization mine runs at about +2spd. I've tested resting it overnight in all 6 positions and it maintains chronometer specs throughout.
Art is how we decorate space. Music is how we decorate time.
Speaking for the hand-wound Alpha in my Tangente: For my longest timing run I averaged -2.2 per day. Iíve also had as rough as -5.2, and as strong as -0.7 after significant runs.

Each is fantastic in its own way, and was acquired after (and often because of) hours spent on this forum!
Is there a difference in magnetization sensitivity between Nomos' alpha movement and their "swing system" equipped newer movements?

After about a year my Nomos Club Neomatik is still running at +0.5s/d. I really couldn't ask for more!
Hereís an odd phenomenon. Perhaps someone has a theory
I have a minimatik I bought used about six months ago. Iíve worn it for a few days at a stretch for many a half dozen times over as many months.
When I first got the watch, and a few times in the following months I checked itís accuracy with the Frederick Constant Analytics dongle and app, running between +3,+4 spd. Good enough for me.
A few days ago I put the watch on. The next day I checked itís accuracy. +25 spd. I took out my demagnetized and ran it throu a couple of times, +15 spd. Okay, I sat to ponder whether it was necessary to send the watch to Nomos.
The next day I checked it, +3.5 spd. Iíve checked it a few times since, +2, +3.5 spd.
What puzzles me is how and why it went from +15 to +3 overnight. Residual magnetism? Excercise?
