    Purchased a Gen 2 about a year ago, was keeping good time but has stopped working (strangely the the stopwatch still functions !!). Can anyone recommend a good service centre ??. Thanks

    I have a 7t32 which did just this last month. Hands stopped but chrono still worked. Fresh battery sorted it. If you don't do DIY battery work, try a pm to bodo (Guy) on here.

    I wear it maybe 1 day a week currently - though it seems to have no effect on the timekeeping, either way.

    Good on you Sean, my OCD would never allow me to let a mechanical go over a minute plus or minus.

    This is as far over as it's ever been. I've considered hacking it, as I don't think that it'll materially affect this challenge, but at the same time I'm now very aware how fast it's running and am making the mental adjustment each time I check the time.

    Still +2s overall since the start of this. According to my timing app, its running at 0.04spd which should work out at <15s per year.

    Coming up to the Summer Solstice and the nights will soon be drawing in but the Clio is still steady at a total of +3 seconds.

    A splendid performance. With that level of accuracy, you could solve the longitude question.

    Leaderboard updated!

    Many thanks to everyone for their continued participation... midsummers' this week, though we're not have way through the BST challenge for a little while yet!

    I was so busy admiring the continued accuracy - and, erm, va va voom? - of the plucky contender that I didn't notice the minute and second clicking over on time.is.... you're really ratcheting things up there :)

    Real life events have started to get in my way, and will for a while, and my nicer watches need packing away for the time being, including the Presage. So this is me bowing out. By the time the PR runs down, it will have been running nonstop for exactly three months - I had already been wearing it for the week before the clocks went forward - so that feels nice and neat.

    81 days, 1 second. We salute you, little seiko... sweet dreams!

    My G-Shock has had a two second week and is now + 17 since we started. Still not bad but compared to some here, not on a par.
