Mine is 99.996% accurate (+/-3 seconds per day) which comes under 'Excellent' for a mechanical non-COSC Certified watch.

All of mine are accurate enough to make sure I'm on time. To me, "on time" means 15 min. early; anything less is "late" ;)

All mine are extremely accurate at least twice a day, whether they are running or not...

Thank you kind sirs. This is the first time I've had an extremely accurate watch as I've always used automatics.

Nice! I'm thinking about getting a Seiko Astron. My Citizen AT keeps the exact Atomic Time even all the way in Nome Alaska so I'm not really having any signal difficulties. I'm just fascinated with the technology.

Sent from yet another electronic gadget...

I have several radio controlled watches who's accuracy is as accurate as the radio signal. I have numerous quartz watches which are way more accurate than anything that cheap has a right to be.
This watch is very accurate I have not set if for two or three months at a time and its been less than a minute off

of my purely mechanical time pieces this old grand seiko is still running well within the very stringent plus five and minus three in six positions as stated from Seiko. I have had the timing checked various times and its sometimes six seconds but most often about four. I am astonished all the time about how well it keeps time considering its age and the abuse I put it through as a younger man wearing it in the commercial kitchen in which I was working

Awesome! My most accurate watch in my Vintage Seiko mechanical collection is my 6309 Turtle from 1980.

My SBGA011 Spring Drive 'Snowfkake' runs better than 1 second a month. Which is almost ridiculous.

But my favourite 6105, 6306, and 6309 divers seem to average +/- 20 or 30 seconds a day, which is perfectly OK with me.

Absolute accuracy isn't important when I usually change watches every couple if days.

My Alpinist is +5 and my 7S26 Diver is about +15. I wear both around the clock. I have used onlineclock.net and time.gov as standards. They're 5 seconds apart this morning.
