    Have two 8215s both 5 years old. Worn often but not continuously. One runs +1s/day, the second is +3 and both are consistent. A newish 9015 does even better at 0 to +0.5 (crown up at night).

    The 7S26 can rapidly lose accuracy and power reserve if not kept at or near full wind, otherwise they can be surprisingly accurate. I've found that manual winding (ie a GENTLE shake from side to...

    Agreed, but I was thinking Enid Blyton and the Famous Five... Like the watch very much but that's a deal-breaker. Depth rating is all that's required.
