Is -2 seconds / day legitimately bad?

Yes, I'm one of those people.  I love my Deep Stream 49150 purchased May 2015 and just recently noticed it's -2s/day.

Now, if it were +2s or even +5s/day, I wouldn't bat an eyelash.  Something about -2s however just bothers me.

Do I have a legitimate case to take it into the NY boutique for re-regulating?  Or am I being too anal (yes, I realize it's still within COSC standards, but it's the visceral notion that bothers me).

 

Thanks!

I would be curious on how your watch runs on a timing machine

A read out from a timing machine will let you know how it runs in all 6 positions.  You can then see how it compares with what you experience while wearing the watch (do you wear it every day, all day?)

Maybe you can find a position to lay your watch down at night that will compensate for the -2 sec/day that you are observing.

If that does not work, you can have your watch adjusted by VC's watchmaker, it is a very easy adjustment for a watchmaker to make the watch run slightly faster.

While some people may think -2 sec/day is not a big deal, it is your watch and what other people think does not matter.  The good thing is you do not mind if your watch runs slightly fast per day.  If you wanted to experience exactly 0 sec/day while on your wrist, that would be a much more time consuming challenge.

By the way, we NEED pictures of your OS Chronograph! smiley

Something tells me I'll be dropping by the VC Boutique in New York next month for a quick tune up.  I find myself obsessing about the -2s/day (even keeping records on an Excel spreadsheet to make sure my eyes do not deceive me).  

My first experience with VC, and a non-hacking movement (which I got over pretty quickly).

I fear the Deep Stream may be a gateway to my ultimate grail ... the Malte Perpetual Chronograph 47112 - likely 5 to 10 years out.  Someone out there is already wearing my future watch!  wink

Looks great on your wrist! Is that the rubber strap I see? (nt)
