My Overseas Dual Time

Hi guys,

I acquired my Overseas Dual time last year and it is my first VC.

I have observed that it advances 2-4 minutes per week if I do not use it and just leave it in a winder(counter clockwise).

Any recommendations?

use of winders (other than on perpetual calendars) as by contunually winding the movement it will accelerate wear and tear.

 

if you bought your watch new, you can take it back to any good watchmaker who can regulate it, however if you bought 2nd hand your OS may need servicing so better send to a VC service center

Thanks Alex.

It keeps good time when worn.  It is only when I leave it in a winder where it advances. I do not like winding watches as I am the type who picks up a watch based on mood and activity of the day so I want my watches synchronized all the time. smiley

Winder whereas when on wrist everything evens out. Take it to your watchmaker and explain the situation

Thank you. I am trying different settings on my winder and see how it goes.

Congrats and welcome

I think you picked a great watch.  If it is your first, it will likely lead to more - consider yourself warned!  Mine says hello.

Congrats and welcome

Also, I go the black rubber strap (and stainless deployant) for it.  Highly recommend it.  It changes the look of the watch and I think it looks really great.  Judge for yourself, though.

Congrats and welcome

Thank you.  

Great recommendation.  Have you tried putting a leather strap?  Will it look good?

I have seen some other photos of one with a leather strap.  I think it would look great.  I would have a hard time deciding between black and blue for the leather - or maybe even the gray for a less contrasty look... so many options.

Great! I'll try to look for a lether strap that will complement the steel casing.

Thanks

That's a beautiful watch. For my OS1, my wrist is my winder!

Good to see you and your watch here.

Hello.

No dual time models are in new OS line.

It increases the value of your watch.

Regards.

Hi Io,

Pardon my ignorance but what do you mean by OS line?

Thanks

OS is a common abbreviation for Overseas, here on the forum

There is a new generation of Overseas released this year.  The third.  Bill (who introduced himself above) has the first generation.  We have the 2nd.  There is now a third. There is no Dual time in the third generation lineup of the Overseas collection - yet.  You never know!
