Noticed that my SBBN013 Darth Tuna has only gained about half a second in the last two weeks, really impressed - I'd expect that in a thermocompensated movement but not a regular 7C46.
Recently acquired a SBQJ015 Spirit GMT with the high-accuracy 8F56 movement (supposedly 20 seconds per year), so far the seconds hand is in sync with the Tuna, be interesting to see how long they stay together.

Same here. My 23yo 7c46-7009 has been serviced last year and is gaining about 1 sec/month currently.... My 2yo sbbn007 gains about 3 or 4 sec/month... not bad at all imo...

I have a few 7C46 powered watches.

Some are very accurate, within 2 seconds a month.

I have one SBBN007 which is pretty fast..about 9 seconds a month fast. It can be adjusted ( by cutting the print ) but this can't be reversed. I leave it like it is.

^-^ Thanks Luka,


As you say a bit risky, :-\ it's a shame they could not put in a small trimmer screw to mess with ;D Bob.

Coming up to a month - still less than one second gained on my 7C46 equipped SBBN013 - very happy, the hands still moving in sync with my SBQJ015 which is intended to be within +20 seconds per year with its 8F56.
