Nowhere in the little operations manual that came with my watch does it give the accuracy of the timepiece. Where can I get that information? I have a movado ESQ bracer chronograph.

Interesting question. I know little about watches but, as you would know, your watch does have a quartz movement, so, from Wikipedia, 'Quartz clock':

Standard-quality resonators of this type are warranted to have a long-term accuracy of about 6 parts per million at 31 degrees C (87.8 F): that is, a typical quartz wristwatch will gain or lose 15 seconds per 30 days (within a normal temperature range of 5 deg C / 41 F to 35 deg C / 95 F) or less than a half second clock drift per day when worn near the body.

If a quartz wristwatch is "rated" by measuring its timekeeping characteristics against an atomic clock's time broadcast, to determine how much time the watch gains or loses per day, and adjustments are made to the circuitry to "regulate" the timekeeping, then the corrected time will easily be accurate within 10 seconds per year. This is more than adequate to perform celestial navigation.

Assuming that you have a computer with internet-synced time and good internet, meaning around 1/100 second accuracy, why not compare the watch to the computer over the space of a week?

Hi, I've got a automatic tag aquaracer watch that loses about 4 mins every month (about 4 yrs old). Common problem? Can this be fixed ? Or is it a lemon of a watch? Any advice welcome. Cheers.

If it's automatic and 4 years old, it's probably time for a watch overhaul. Auotmatic watches need overhauled about once every 4-5 years. It's normal for it to lose time, but 4 minutes per month may be a little extreme. So, get the watch overhauled. I would recommend Tag Heuer to overhaul it.

My watch has been losing time all day long. It runs at least two to five minutes slow in the course. I bought it in 2006.

Overhaul is needed for your watch. It has mechanism, and it needs to be serviced every 4-5 years. Just imagine what would your car do without service! So, go and see the watchmaker.

Hi I have a Tissot T Race watch (model # T011417 A). It is still under gurantee, but I noticed that every 24 hours, there is a delay of 5 seconds in the watch; in other words (1 minute and 10 seconds...

I agree with the repair service, in that it probably is not a big deal, but since it is still under warranty, I would contact Tissot at the following to get their professional advice on their product.

Bulova has mechanical day/date display near 3 o'clock position, electronic watch (quartz I presume) less than 3 yrs old. Started losing time. I assumed the original battery needed to be replaced. Battery...

I believe you are just outside your warranty. Its time to see a watch maker/technician about repairing the watch. Often times slowing is as easy to fix as lubricating the movement and forcing the gear train through the use of a cyclonic device. This fix takes minutes and is very cost effective. If the slowing is due t circuit board issues or a more sever gear train problem then the movement will need to be overhauled. I suggest comparing this cost to the cost of a replacement movement.

Omega Seamaster gaining about 10 minutes per hour

Hi honestfunguy. Take it back! Omega watches are usually guaranteed for 2 years or even 3 years (Co-axial escapement), so you should not have a problem getting it repaired under warrantee. No way should it be be gaining (or losing) 10 minutes per day, let alone 10 minutes per hour. Could be any number of things, from a broken mainspring to problems with the timing regulator, but they are very complex watches and should not be looked at by anyone apart from Omega whilst in warrantee, otherwise you'll probably void the warrantee. Hope this helps; Eagle58

There is nothing wrong with your watch. Probably it's the one measuring heart rate and pulse (heart beats per second).
Use your users manual to set the watch.
By the way: Timex is one of the worst watch producers.

It's not ok. Usual specs are +/- 1-2 secs a month, no more.
Try battery change first and if it doesn't help, go and see your nearest watcmaker to solve the problem.
