I have a 190H which has been gaining time for a few months now. It is gaining several minutes per month. I am not overly concerned with rate on the watch, but am wondering if it needs to be serviced? what kind of damage can i do by not servicing it? and would it be more costly later? The watch has been used regularly--it has seldom exhausted its power reserve. This is a JLC 8 day movement and it is now out of warranty. Should i send it to Panerai and could someone give me a guess on the cost for service.
Ora et Labora
I wouldn't bother until the watch needs servicing for other issues or if it gets worse. You can try placing it during nighttime at different positions (face down, etc.) and see if that helps. Regarding service pricing, it's best to get a quote for a general service, can't bee too expensive (I hope,,,,). Maybe others will answer but I think you have a better chance on the public forum.
Cheers and best from the holyland,
