Question about Ebel 1911 9125241/10665P Wrist Watch
I just bought this watch and it is running 10 minutes ahead each hour. Terrible. I don't know what it could be. The instruction manual says something about removing a screw in the winder before doing anything else. I do not understand what that means. I've never heard of such a user activity.
If this is brand new watch, the best way is to bring it back to the dealer to get it fixed under warranty or you will have to pay if the warranty expires. And watch repairs are quite costly.
By the way- there is no reason to panic yet, as this sort of mechanical failure happens from time to time even to brand new watches.
The reason of this can be:
1) Watch has been magnetized,
2) Watch hairspring has some dirt particles sticking onto it,
3) Hairspring can be greasy,
4) Jewel holes are not oiled properly,
5) Uneven coiling of hairspring,
6) Index hasn't been regulated properly.
I understand that all this sounds a bit too scary, but in fact it is no big deal and any decent watchmaker can fix all this quite quickly, so, do not think your watch needs a complete rebuild or similar action.
About removing that screw: There must not be any screws in the winder, but as I do understand, your watch has a screwdown crown (winder) and you have to unscrew it prior setting hands or date. Screwdown crowns are very nice feature as your watch gets very good water resistance, just don't forget to screw it back on.
Don't forget to rate, please.
