Hi Everyone,
I recently received my very first Ball watch from my wife as an anniversary gift. What can I say... it is awesome and I love my wife for giving it to me.
I love the understated look it has and the lume!!

Well, I have been checking the watch to see how well it keeps time. Over about a week now the watch have consistently get about 10+ sec per day. It this normal for this calibre watch? I know my is not a Chronometer, but is 10+ a lot?
This is my first automatic watch, so I am pretty new at this.

Any good information for this newbie would be very much appreciate.

I took a shot of my new favorite watch and attached it here.

Thanks guys... I will try you suggestion. By the way what is the break in period for such a watch anyway?

+10 sec/day is not bad for a new watch. Personally, I would break it in with 2-3 months of continuous running to see if it settles down a bit.

roberev, I guess it is just like a new car. I must say mechanical watch is much more interesting than a quartz watch already :biggrin:
I will wait and see if it will settle down.
