Re: Hanhart Replicas. Here's an eBay listing for one of the Russian versions.

And a couple of days ago I read about an Hanhart hommage from Sinn, I believe. But I can't find it anymore.

I think you've missed the point...

A creditable copy of IWC's Big Pilot.

I have noticed many who post in here have a penchant bordering on obsession for greater and greater accuracy. Why? I can't think of an instance in which a second or two a day matters. Heck, ten or more for that matter.

Is it just the desire to achieve near perfection?

I'm not sure if I posted this before, but here's my old Panerai 111 on a custom made strap with laser-cut Ferrari "cavallino" on the buckle. I wear this watch all the time, but usually on a very distressed brown leather strap. A few weeks ago I decided to polish it up with a Cape Cod polishing cloth, and swapped straps. My g/f saw it on my dresser and asked me if I got another watch, and I explained that she has probably seen me wear this one 500 times! She loved the strap, put the watch on and has been wearing it for the past month or so. I only got it back because she's out of town!

It used to matter alot to me, but with so many time sources nearby, adjusting for wander is less important to me.

Yes. Really. It's the idea that a little bitty engine can be made to split time into such accurate components. Unless you are lost at sea with a watch, tables and sextant and no radio with which to set your watch is accuracy REALLY critical.

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!

I've used my watch for keeping engine room logs and bell books.
If it's within 30 seconds I'm happy, I don't like to have to reset it more than once a week.

at the moment the Seiko has been stationary whilst it runs down.
I am seeing how long the spring lasts before it stops.

Will repeat the exercise after I get it serviced / overhauled and let you know the results

Its not like we are timing torpedo runs moon shots with it!

I've not serviced my Sub since the day I bought it (2006)

Still runs bang on time. Should I get it serviced as a form of preventative maintenance?

Oh, six years is still within acceptable limits if it's running well - when it starts to run erratically then it's time to consider service - like if it suddenly starts running slow. My Breitling went from running a few seconds fast to running a half minute slow - pretty good signal there.
