Gday Sir Les,Sir said:Those are the sort of figures I'd expect to see, well within Citizen's specs. Since the specs are based on the watch being worn for about 16 hours a day at normal temperatures, you might find the ones running fast will improve their performance if you wear them daily.
One thing that did surprise me was that the digital and analogue on your JP3040 drift apart -- and in opposite directions. Mine stay firmly in sync, as does my other Aquamount and also my Aqualands.
thats interesting to know about the 16hr wear/day spec on quartz, has that been published by the manufacturers or accepted wisdom based on experience? also interesting to know quartz slow down while worn more, but i guess that'd tie in with your first point mentioned?
regards the 3040, yeah i know, im slightly dissapointed about that to be honest, i thought they act off the same electronics...not sure why they differ but they do. The Tissot synchronises perfectly, ill have to check the skyhawk, forgot to check that one.
