    I've owned about 10 or 12 different sapphire backed Nomos over the last 4 years and have never experienced this? Any idea of how you're managing this?

    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.

    How accurate is your in-house Nomos?

    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.

    Re: How accurate is your in-house Nomos?

    Is there a difference in magnetization sensitivity between Nomos' alpha movement and their "swing system" equipped newer movements?

    Anecdotes would suggest so. Best I've seen out of my Metro is +6spd with an average of +10spd. The ETA based movements seem better, but again - small samples so YMMV.

    Re: How accurate is your in-house Nomos?

    After about a year my Nomos Club Neomatik is still running at +0.5s/d. I really couldn't ask for more!

    Re: How accurate is your in-house Nomos?

    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?
