SulTana watch keeping time

Recommended Posts

@Just2cold At the $800 price point I expect this is one of the current range of Sultana automatic watches. In which case, if you're not happy with it, you'd have to go back to the retailer, or contact the company direct. There's a contact form on the website www.sultana.ch. As Scott says, a few seconds off a day would be acceptable, assuming it isn't quartz.

what should be my expectations of time lost per day-week or in 30 days?...........m

Christopher Ward who use respected Swiss Sellita movements in their automatic watches quote a daily tolerance of +/- 20 seconds per 24 hours, so that would mean at the limit of the stated tolerance a potential loss/gain of 1 minute every three days, or 2 minutes and 20 seconds over the course of a week. I have other mechanical watches where the daily stated tolerance is -20 to +40 seconds per 24 hours. If you are accustomed to the timekeeping of a quartz watch, this may seem odd/unacceptable, but nothing to worry about.

I like to fiddle with things with my hands. I daren’t buy a gadget spinner because I will never put the damn thing down. So I like to interact manually with my watch. I view adjusting the time once a week as an opportunity to do so, to feel the crown in my finders as in unscrew it and then set the time. This tactile side of things is a different way of looking at what watch ownership means compared to having a quartz which just keeps going.
