Maybe this doesn't bother most people, but it sure annoys the hell out of me when I see the second hand on quartz watches hitting some intermediate position, and not landing on the minute markers.
In town today I was looking in a jeweller's window and was dismayed to see almost all the Seiko quartz watches on display showing this characteristic. This included the Pulsars.
However the Citizen Eco-drives seemed to be pretty much spot on.
Really don't get this. The Seiko kinetics I have are all spot on, whereas the Seiko Sawtooths I used to have were not. The tuna I used to have was also spot on.
I understand that often it is potluck as to whether they are spot on or not, but seeing all those Seikos today made me wonder.
Anyone else seen this?
Maybe I'm just over-sensitive.
