Default 4R35 Performance out of the box - AMAZING ! Full & Half Wind Update

Just picked up a "New Samurai" SRPB51 with the 4R35 caliber. The no date version of the 4R36.

Brand new, never worn, full wind, waited 15 minutes, popped it on the Timerapher to see if I had to regulate it. I would have to say 'no need'

I like those, too. Nice watch Jon and looks to be running very well. Test again in 24 hours as it would be interesting to see what it's like half way through its power reserve. But that means you can't wear it.

It'll probably drift a bit as you break in the watch.

Turns out I did not wear it at all today Guy, so here are the half wind results - pretty much the same with some expected amplitude drop but still quite high for an entry level Seiko movement !

Every now and then Seiko lets one slip through the net!

It does happen, I had a new Alpha Paul Newman (Chinese chronograph) that was similar, had a better amplitude though.

That's within the tolerance, all right! I guess if you produce enough movements, there's gotta be some aberrations like this...

Yes it's an entry level-ish caliber, maybe a step above the 7SX6 series, and I expected a lot less.

Like you say, given distribution curves, it's bound to be as good as this one sometimes.
