Overseas Dual Time - my watch is a little crazy

Hi fellow Vecheron Constantin owners/lovers,

I have an Overseas Dual Timer, which I bought as brand new about 18 months ago. I had two quality issues with this nice watch so far.

1. In less than a year, the movement stopped. And it turned out that the second hand was touching the crystal, and I had to send it back to the service center for repair

2. After I got my watch back, I noticed that it would run about 5 minutes faster per month. This is a little beyond my comprehension, given that it is supposed to be a high-end Swiss watch

I was wondering if anyone had similar experiences like mine.

Thanks.

chances are the watch has been magnetized, however

false impression that only the chrono was antimagnetic blush shows that you're never vigilant enough!

I found two numbers at the back of my watch, but I am not sure which one is which. So here they are:

47450 & 158334

Thanks Alex!!

Sorry, it took me so long to dig out the warranty paper. The movement number is 5156342. Thanks in advance.
welcome to the Lounge, as Alex says it is probably magnetized but its

not an issue as it takes about 5 minutes to demagnetize if you take to a competent watchmaker
