We’ve been following the Toolwatch folks since their solid beginning and they worked effectively in making a ‘tool’ to quantify the precision of your watch. First through their site, yet now there’s additionally the Toolwatch application accessible in the Apple Store and Play Store (Google).
Checking the precision of your watch
For the majority of you watch aficionados out there, exactness is a significant part of your mechanical watch. The chronometer (COSC) norms is one approach to ensure the exactness of a watch (down to – 4/+6 seconds per day by and large), yet it is just legitimate for a very long time and maybe – 4 seconds every day still isn’t adequate for you. Additionally, the chronometer testing and confirmation just applies to the actual development. After this affirmation, the developments are being sent back to the producer to be cased. Brands like Rolex and Omega make it a couple of strides further, by doing extra tests (and affirmation) on the complete watch. Thusly, Rolex ensures the exactness to be inside – 2/+2 seconds every day and Omega inside 0 – 5 seconds day.
Other brands, similar to Jaeger-LeCoultre and Grand Seiko for instance, have their own test techniques and exactness guidelines. Be that as it may, these aren’t sealed or ensured by third parties.
So how might you measure the precision of your watch? All things considered, with the toolwatch application, you measure the ‘time’ at one second (the underlying estimating time) and following 12 hours, you measure it again with the assistance of the application. The Toolwatch application (and site) at that point checks it with the nuclear deadbeats. Et presto, they present you the contrast between the real time and the time sign on your watch, measures more than 12 hours and synchronized with the nuclear clock.
It is a simple and modest (free) approach to check the exactness of your watch. In the event that the exactness is off track, this may demonstrate that your watch needs an assistance. A watchmaker can check the sufficiency of the equilibrium wheel (which is a superior pointer whether an assistance is considered significant) to check whether a help or redesign is required. It could likewise be an instance of ‘simply’ demagnetizing your watch. Attractive fields are all over and affect the exactness of your watch.
I see downloading and introducing the Toolwatch application as a decent initial step to have a sign whether your watch is as yet precise and whether it due to have a help (or not).
