Re: I wouldn't touch a thing..............

2 sec's a day is excellent, definetly within a chronometer's spec's(-6/+4). I have compensated one or two seconds a day (depending how long I wear my chrono and how long it sits) by placing it at night with the 3:00 down (9:00up). It seems to actually run a little fast when in this position. Yours may be different. Try laying it in diff. positions at night, till you get the one that works best for yours.

I wouldn't have anyone adjust a watch before its "broken in". Could magnify problems in the future. Plus the fewer times your watch is opened, the better. (IMHO) Besides if you can't make up time with the watch in a specific position at night, then -2 sec a day (or 1 min. per month) isn't bad.
