Question about Seiko Divers SKXA35 Wrist Watch
After a year of good accuracy, my Seiko dive watch is running 1-2 hours fast per day. Any idea what could cause such a dramatic change? Watch has not been dropped, smacked, or otherwise traumatized.
If your watch caliber is 7s26b(look at the case back plate)is a usual problem of those calibers!the hair spring stuck somehow and the watch runs!a seiko authorized sevice center can help you!dont let anybody else magician to ruin your watch!is a routine repair for someone with knowledge and support from seiko!

Tips for a great answer:
Standard-quality resonators of this type are warranted to have a long-term accuracy of about 6 parts per million at 31 degrees C (87.8 F): that is, a typical quartz wristwatch will gain or lose 15 seconds per 30 days (within a normal temperature range of 5 deg C / 41 F to 35 deg C / 95 F) or less than a half second clock drift per day when worn near the body.
If a quartz wristwatch is "rated" by measuring its timekeeping characteristics against an atomic clock's time broadcast, to determine how much time the watch gains or loses per day, and adjustments are made to the circuitry to "regulate" the timekeeping, then the corrected time will easily be accurate within 10 seconds per year. This is more than adequate to perform celestial navigation.
Assuming that you have a computer with internet-synced time and good internet, meaning around 1/100 second accuracy, why not compare the watch to the computer over the space of a week?
