    Time For A Service?

    Hi,

    My DA36 used to run +/- 1sec per day.
    However recently that has changed and it now loses 4secs per day.

    I have had it for 2.5 years now.
    Time for a service you reckon?

    I wouldn't get the movement a complete service but, certainly get it regulated.

    +-4 is still well within COSC. Whats the amplitude? 280-310 is solid. I just purchased a new to me DK10, 3 yrs old, was +12 with an amp of 290. Sent it to Watchmann to regulate and they got it to +2 so they say. Still waiting to get it back. Agreed with the above...just regulate.

    Personally I'd wait at least another 2.5 years. Perhaps you have another watch in your collection that needs a service and you want to help your watchmaker out in these hard times.

    Yes actually,I have started wearing it during the night. Maybe I will synch the watch to GMT again and not wear at it night for a few nights to see what happens. Thanks for that.

    I don't know what amplitude is. Let me Google it and then I can hopefully tell you.
    I haven't heard of regulating a watch before so I'll find out about that too.

    Thanks for your reply.

    Unfortunately I don't. But good to know that I can leave it another 2.5 years. In the mean time I might stop wearing it at night to see if that resolves the issue.

    I'm curious, what about that amplitude, it's pretty low. Will that be corrected too? I ask because I have a DK105 with the H35 movement and I'm interested to hear how it's A35 sibling performs over time.

    You are 100% right. that is low. I made a typo and meant 290 (I just corrected). I think when the amp gets that low, it's service time. FYI, I just got it back and it's now at +2 with same amp.
