Pah. As of 6.30 this morning, neither the f300 or the KS had lost or gained a single second. Neck and neck.

If the king seiko wasn't temporarily out of commission I'd be putting my chips on that. In fact I might add that as well. Swiss vs Japanese,  electronic vs mechanical. 

that would be good 

 

:laugh:

Remember chaps all is fair in love and war. And no excuses for not entering your best watch for the challenge to see if it really is best! Claims 'I have this mega watch'...' which will beat you all'...'But I'm not entering it because'. Will be taken to imply you are scared of it disgracing itself' :thumbsup:

I set this yesterday at 5pm so will take a 3 hour handicap if you let me join in or if I'm too late I will act as silent observer

You are welcome to join mate and to anyone else who is brave enough to enter a really nice watch into the 'challenge'. Come on lads enter when ever you want and just adjust the running time by adding a day or whatever. You can even enter more than one watch! I'm a totally easy going guy. The rules are flexible but no cheating!:laugh:

Great competition Nigel and I would join in except that I will probably be in hospital over that period, and when in hospital I will wear a low cost quartz number.

Thanks everyone for showing the watches they will be using for this interesting accuracy test. I shall be looking forward to seeing who is the winner, and what watches have lost out in the timing stakes.:)

Oh dear, but  a few more days to go yet, and both were unworn until I got home tonight.

Null and void results as you are not using the "standard" Nige has set the trial by

:laugh:  :laugh:

So at 24hrs in 

LV:      3 seconds fast

GMT:  4 seconds slow

I'm a bit surprised that the LV is so close given the life it's had and that both are still within spec all be it only just for the GMT. I should add that neither have left my wrist and the hardest thing I've done in the last 24hrs is make a few cups of coffee and read books.

My 55-y-o Omega is doing well. After a night on its back...ooh, err, Missus...and a day on the wrist it has gained 1 sec, so now -5 net.:)

This is the first watch I bought as a vintage, back in 2008, and I have often said it would be the last to leave.
