: I just brought my Bond for two weeks and very love it. I wear 14-16 hour a
: day and place it horizontal at night. After checking with the NIST web
: clock it lose about 6-7sec/day. I'm going to check the accuracy by placing
: it in different position. But, how can it pass the chronometer test ??

They test the movement to see that it is operates within -4/+6 seconds per day. After the test, the movement is then made in to a watch and shipped. A lot can happen to a movement after it is tested. Also, your wearing usage and -- as you know -- how you sit it at night, causes it to operate differently.

The test does not guarantee anything about the future performance of a watch. Also, as the watch 'breaks in' its performance will vary. Hopefully for the better.
