Hey guys,

I've read a bunch of threads regarding the Invicta 8926 either losing or gaining time every day. I just purchased mine, and it has been about +/- 5 seconds/day. Can this be fixed? I'm not looking to spend a ton of money on repairs, given that it only cost me $85.

Its not a HUGE deal to me, because this isn't an every-day watch for me, and I likely won't be getting an auto-winder... but I also don't want a defective piece.

Thanks!
Jared

Plus or minus 5 seconds a day for a mechanical automatic is excellent. You have no need of getting that watch repaired. If that type of accuracy is unacceptable to you then you should get a quartz.

COSC (Controle Officiel Suisse des Cronometres) lab standards for a mechanical movement are anywhere from -4 to +6 seconds daily average. I'd say your watch is working just fine!

Wikipedia has a short but excellent page on this Swiss timing institute.
