Perhaps ten times more accurate than you can read. Lots of stopwatches go to one thousandths of a second, while the person pressing the buttons has a reaction time that can vary from one tenth to half a second. And every time the reaction time changes. So if it is not electronically is started and stopped, don't bother the accuracy of the watch.

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?

I'm looking for the manual instructions for my LANCASTER Watch 0346 I dont know how to adjust the date or knows about it


Pull out to the "winder" to the first click. this is to change the date. The second click is to change the time.

Changing the date - rotating the winder (if you were looking at it) in a clockwise directions changes the major decimal - the number on the left e.g. 0, 1, 2, 3. Rotating anticlockwise changes the lesser decimal - the number on the right e.g. 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9

Hope that helps.

I calibrated my Timex WS4 using a known barometric pressure and set the weather conditions but the watch is telling me I'm at an altitude of -42 meters (which I'm not) and the temperature is at least 10...


You should carefully read the manual on this watch. It is a very sophisticated instrument realitive to its cost.

The barometric pressure in the CAL mode is set to the reference sea level. The pressure that is read in the other areas is the actual or relative pressure at your location.

There are some tollerences for the accuracy of these watches. What they are excellent at is seeing the relative differences or changes. I found that when I set the reference barometric pressure (Sea Level Pressure), everything falls in to place. I found the WP4 to be accurate to within about 15 to 20 feet accuracy for altitude most of the time. It is important to periodically check the barometric pressure from the weather office if you want it to be as accurate as possible.

When hiking or out trecking, it is advisable to check the watch's altitude relative to the map that you are using, or to a known reference. Then as you travel you can check for the altitude change.

Take care that this type of watch is to be used as a quick or easy reference only. It is not certified to be used in situations where life and safety are fully dependent on the readings from this type of watch. It is a precision instrument, but not as precise as the high end professional certified types. It is best to refer to proper maps (charts), and depend on a certified mechanical compass for absolute reference.

I suggest you talk to Rolex or thier local dealer to see if the slowness you are concerned about is outside the guaranteed accuracy for the watch.

I can't find any reference to accuracy on the Rolex site but other makers have mentioned 15 seconds per month for the accuracy of an automatic watch. This seems poor compared to the accuracy that we have become used to from electronic watches but it is a mechanical watch!

Speaking to the maker might clarify what you can expect from your watch and if it is outside their tolerances, I would expect them to put it right under their warranty.

I have a men's Citizen Eco-Drive WR 200. Why does my digital time accuracy differ by 2 mins from the analog setting? Thank you, Wayne


The analogue time can be set to agree with the digital time by following their instruction manual.

If you go to http://www.citizenwatch.com/COA/English/settings.asp and follow the instructions, you can download the ones for your watch.

Is 6 seonds to fast for a breilting colt to be running


Although this is poor compared to electronic watches, I have read other makers accuracy claims and they say that a mechanical watchcan be out by as much as 20 seconds a day!

I would have thought that it could be regulated (adjusted) to run more accurately but you will have to speak to the manufacturer about this.
