Losing Time

Hello Everyone,

If this or similar has already been posted, I couldn't find it, so here goes!

My 218 Accutron has started losing time (running slow). I mean significantly slow. It just had a battery change (it had stopped completely), and I noticed soon after that this was happening. It loses time both on the wrist and lying dial-side up on the nightstand. What could be causing this problem?

Firstly welcome to the forum.

They will run fine for years without much attention but do need servicing.
My guess is that you need to get the watch serviced. I would not run it any more to avoid costly damage.
Does the second sweep move smoothly all the way around the dial?
I concur with Oliver.
If the local guy cannot turn it around within a month then I would recommend Ludmil too.
