Thread: Accuracy of Expedition

    Accuracy of Expedition

    What's everyone getting? Mine has settled down at around +2 seconds a day. Really pleased with this aspect of what is already a fantastic looking watch.

    Quite simply my favourite new watch ever and (imho) the best TF model so far.

    Keep up the good work Mr Platts!

    After around one month on the wrist, about +2 to +4. Pleasantly surprised.

    The Miyota in my Baby Speedbird is the most accurate movement Iíve ever owned, including COSC movements. It gains under 1spd. To say Iím very pleased with it would be an understatement.

    You're obsessed with the "milky ring".

    Cheese, for goodness sake you do need to lait it go.

    Dairy I say it butter Eddie has made it crystal clear he can't sell watches with an acrylic.

    If you have a watch that suffers from a milky ring and you think you might spot it, just move it quick. It'll be pasteurise before you know it.

    I have to say in Velorums defence the milky ring he alludes to is there , it's apparent and only seems to be on sapphire box crystals. Doesn't seem to appear on acrylic. It's one of those live with it or not things. It was a distraction for me , just one of those things. It didn't stop me from owning watches with them but once I saw it it was a distraction slightly.

    Newbie here. I was about to open a thread on this regarding my PRS29A just to gather some knowledge, but I guess it is ok if I lay it out here. I tested the accuracy of my PRS (bought last May) the last 5 days and this are the results:

    dial up: +29s/d
    dial down: -18s/d
    crown up: +5s/d
    crown down: +6s/d
    crown left: +2s/d

    Actually the funny thing is that, when worn 24h/d, it shows an astonishing accuracy: +1s/d. Therefore, since when it is worn the timing is spot on, I am far from worried; i just wanted to ask you if it means anything at all that the accuracy spans from +29s/d to -18s/d when unworn. Should it be regulated? Or it would not make any sense considering that it just gains 1 second per day when it is worn?

    Thank you
    Tom

    Tom, how do you do "Crown left"?

    That's rather poor positional variance, regulating won't help with the lack of precision here. Do you wind the watch fully every day?

    I was a bit surprised tbh. And yes, I wind the watch at the same hour every day. Any suggestions, even though on wrist it keeps a steady +1/+2 seconds per day?

    Thanks,
    Tom

    29 April 2020==> -1.43 sec/day
    11 May 2020 ==> 0.00 sec/day
    05 Sept 2020 ==> -0.14 sec/day

    Accuracy of Expedition

    Worn my Everest everyday this week and itís now -10s vs this time last week. Pretty impressive to say the least!

    The only Miyota movement I've owned was in a Dagez Aurora. Was one of the most accurate watches I've owned, better than any Japanese movement, including a Seiko MM300 8L35 movement. Came that way new, and never changed over the 3 years I owned it. Always thought maybe Jake regulated them, but perhaps not.

    My Everest was on the fast side gaining between 25 and 30 seconds per day when I received it. I took it to a local watchmaker who regulated it and now it's dialled in between 3-5 seconds plus per day.
    Quite pleased with the performance.

    Accurate enough to have been used by my daughter in the Oxford University labs to help develop the Covid vaccine ;-)

    Average accuracy

    Not a newbie to watches in general but slowly learning the finer points of how they work.
    A question about adjustments and regulating.

    Timed my Everest in 4 positions (not crown right or crown up) - real-time, not using a timegrapher. The average is close to +10spd. Slowest being +9spd and fastest 12 Spd. Would that suggest that it's well adjusted and regulating in one position would maintain the differences between positions, still running -1 - +2 as it does now? It pretty much reflects the performance on the the wrist, being quite happy with the overall performance. Maybe a very stupid question from someone who so far doesn't have the knowledge regarding these matters

    Very accurate is possible. Produced a YouTube video of mine on a timegrapher, after patience and time to settle in. Being fully wound/worn is important. However , if you want accuracy Navigator is the business, straight out of box.

    I understand that if unworn the accuracy will not be the same, mine runs +15 a day if unworn for 24h, even if winded regularly. Does anybody know the reason and could explain please?
