Well I have no problems, but my wife has with a Tissot automatic.
There is an immense amount on the topic on Google but the posts talk of watches stopping in use.
My other half has no problem with Quartz movements. The Tissot was rescued after years of dubious attention and serviced by a true enthusiastic craftsman. Wound once a day and turned over regularly it keeps excellent time on a dresser. But if she wears it, then it immediately starts to gain and by approximately one hour every five.
The watchmaker has had it back, put it on test gear which replicates arm movement, even worn it for long periods with the aid of velcro and sticky tape. No problem shows up for him.
This is weird; and before any posts start to become "silly" it would be nice to hear from anyone with a like experience.
......this one (like my OH) is special. The wretched watch doesn't stop, it gets a 20% boost over real time. Yesterday was the last time she wore it, after a 4 day rest (the watch). Same result, within the hour there was a huge speed-up. Taking the watch off her wrist again, it took a couple of hours to return to a proper pace.
I have another watch given to my father as an engagement prsent. He wore it for about 50 years. This too has been refurbished after about 30 years in a drawer and keeps good time on my wrist.
'Think I'll lend it to her and see what happens to that.
Sometimes the problem is due to body-heat causing the thermal coefficient of some of the watch components to go berserk. Usually it is the fault of the oscillator crystal. With old analogue watches, the hairspring was affected by changes in temperature. Same principle, the "control" element goes haywire.
I thinks your to remove the contraption the watch from the wrist before retiring to bed bys.
hence resume upon waking and washing the place the darn contraption onto the wrist so one can note the time and pose their watch in public, yet when asked what time is it quarter two ?? or 3 mins past?
where the old fashion person will say ten minutes to 4 o'clock so get clocking and watching for favorite watch
