Had this for a week now and I've kept it fully wound.
Again, no hacking, but I can safely say that in the past week,
it has been within within around -30sec!
This thing is keeping better time than my OS300.
I think the OS may be in need of a service annd regulation.
Seems to bbe slowing down a little. I've been wearing the thing
relentlessly alm ost every day for the past 2 or 3 years.
Some pics in very bad lighting:
the side pic shows thhe little date changer...looks like a He gas escape.
Changed out thhe larger buckle for something a little more sedate.
Again, once Peter tightened up the screws, this has been a delight
to strap on. Great value for the $$$.

and it takes owner experience to fully appreciate them. Of course, the usual accuracy rating is around +-20 secs/day for autos...but yours (seagull ST25xx?) and my sterile DG2813 must have been regulated really well!!!

Naturally for the price of yours and mine, there were niggly QC hassles...but once sorted out, the movement accuracy tends to take over the appreciation of a watch, no matter how nicely designed or not the actual watch is! My Sterile Sub sits next to the Omegas and Seikos (quartz !) and keeps equal, fine time!

Nice. That is a great looking strap. Did you buy it seperately from the watch?

I've never been much into straps, but I recently picked up a Hirsch Liberty and I am slowly converting. Its amazing how leather so thick can still be so flexible. To me they seem more like leather bracelets instead of just a strap.

This site is where I got the watch, and where Thian got his sterile sub:

Once you register, the lower prices appear. Mine was around $55, as was Thians.

The strap and buckle I got from Panatime. Quality straps at reasonable prices.
