Re: Getting timing set
In Response To: Getting timing set ()

: This I find unacceptable. I have had Seiko automatics
: that kept better time. Yes, I realize that by industry
: standards this is acceptable, but I figure an Omega
: should be at least as good as a Seiko as far as accuracy

If you haven't already, you should read the zOwie FAQ topic on watch accuracy.

Truth is, each automatic is a little different. Each reacts to how you use it and wear it. Your physical movement characteristics, the amount of time you wear it each day, and the position you lay it in when you go to sleep all affect the accuracy of any mechanical watch. Accuracy is not unique to any brand and money does not buy better accuracy.
