Watch gaining time
Well have a Seiko 7019 Actus
Runs ok at first. It gains almost 20 mins in an hour. So is it magnetized or needs a service?

Did this watch run well enough and this crazy fast just started?
Did you get it cheap off eBay from far far away? If so maybe wrong parts.
I suspect it’s a pallet or escape wheel issue more than magnetization. But both are easy enough to fix.

Seikos almost never get magnatised but worth trying first.
I'd think the hair spring coils will be stuck together meaning the balance complete needs a clean.
