But I tell you what, how accurate that watch is out of the box determines how much I like that watch. I have a watch I like everything about except that it runs way too far off - like a half minute a day. I find that just annoying.
I'm the guy that looks, shops, buys. As long as it doesn't loose or gain big amounts of time, I just don't care. I don't even know HOW to verify the time!
