How to: Regulate Automatic Watch

1971 ratings | 769190 views
how to regulate your automatic watch to improve it's time keeping accuracy. I have a Seiko SKX173 Auto and used simple tools i bought at a local hardware store and the free audio software Audacity. It's easy to do, just be careful! I'm not a watch maker so do this at your own risk.

did you mention the fact time can go faster or slower depending on the position of the watch? face up/down, 3/6/9/12 up/down, etc..

Cant you just use a demagnetizer for this instead of going through this whole process?
cloudzrest (8 months ago)
i just learned about demagnetizing, i didn't know much about it. But the time keeping of the watch may not be related to magnetism, so it may not fix the problem. Demagnetizing the watch certainly couldn't hurt.
cloudzrest (9 months ago)
Jonathan how exactly would you do that

its also pretty easy to just adjust it agaisnt a quartz watch, use a stopwatch and check the difference every hour or so and make small adjustments.
TheOne AboveAll (1 year ago)
Even with that app you still have plus or minus 2 seconds a day?! 😨 can automatic watches be regulated accurately, adjusting the time every few weeks or every month seems and defeats the purpose of owning a watch.
cloudzrest (8 months ago)
even the best mechanical watches are 2 seconds a day (rolex / omega / breitlings). mechanical watches are 90% style and 10% practicality. its like owning a classic car: its for style and not for gas mileage. if you don't care about style then get a cheap Timex at Target, or just use your cell phone and don't use a watch at all. No one really needs watches nowadays.
cloudzrest (1 year ago)
TheOne AboveAll even the best and most expensive automatic watches will be about 1-2 seconds a day, this level of accuracy is considered very good for a purely mechanical instrument. As far as defeating the "purpose" of having a watch; owning a cell phone defeats this purpose. Almost no one "needs" a watch. Wearing a watch is more about style and image than anything else. Just like wearing a logo or images on clothing, it has no purpose except to convey style. Especially when you can buy non logo clothes for much cheaper.

nair0bij0nes (1 year ago)
Good video mate, thanks for uploading.. Everyone (yourself included) would be well advised though, to use a dedicated piezoelectric microphone to record the mechanism (as there are no magnets in a crystal microphone).. Magnets are chronograph kryptonite and some/most dynamic microphones contain very powerful magnets ie neodymium & the like. Not to mention laptops & phones have speakers with even stronger magnets... Again though, thanks for the vid, was VERY helpful. You're a champ :)
Shane II (1 year ago)
Noticing a lot of comments on recording style and things about the case back, but one important thing to note is that not all watches tick at the same pace, so your 5 ticks per second from you seiko would for example be 7-10 ticks per second on a Rolex IE 28,000 BPH in a 2016 Submariner and 36,000 BPH in modern Daytona movements, but all around a good video either way!

Jsanga4 (1 year ago)
is this a common thing for a auto watches? if so, why?
cloudzrest (8 months ago)
it is common for mechanical watches less than 1000USD. a mechanical watch must be a very finely tuned instrument to keep time precisely. In an age of computers and electronics I know this seems silly, but mechanical watches have their charm. It's a lot like getting an old 1960s Volkswagen Bug to run perfectly and create more power than it would from the factory.

tripsadelica (1 year ago)
Good video but I would recommend that anyone trying this with a mechanical watch first make some effort to demagnetise their watch. Acquired magnetism is the chief cause of time variations. You can buy a cheap AC-powered watch demagnetiser on Ebay for around ten bucks. Follow the directions (and their are how-to videos on Youtube) and demagnetise your watch BEFORE you make any adjustments.
## Rockzy## (1 year ago)
in my watch the spinning thing got stuck and does not move & the watch does not charge,plz help me out
tripsadelica (1 year ago)
The escapement spring on the wheel has become fouled or is broken. That's the hairspring on that spinning cog that you can see moving constantly when you wind your watch. If the watch is an expensive one you can get the spring wheel changed but if it is a Chinese cheapy then just cannibalise the band off the watch and chuck it away. The cost of the repair in most western countries would be more than the watch is worth...sorry to tell you.

BellaTorresBruh (1 year ago)
I have 2 automatic watches, one was 70 and the other was 200 (wow ikr). It continues to count time or continue with my arm movement, if it doesn't move after a while it will stop. Do you know how to make it continue forever or something? I hate having to redo the time every morning , it takes me forever, because when I grab it and try to adjust the time, the seconds still continues so if it's not accurate, it is hard to get it perfect.

I wonder if anyone knows whether dropping my watch on the floor by accident can cause my watch to start gaining time? I have a Sekio 5 that was totally accurate and it seems after I dropped it, it started gaining about 1 minute per day.
cloudzrest (1 year ago)
Glen Daly I'd say that's certainly likely
17thefuzz (1 year ago)
How often do you have to adjust the time on your mechanical watch? I have Seiko Solar and I look for some mechanical alternative but I feel like daily adjustments would make me crazy..
cloudzrest (8 months ago)
it depends how accurate you need your watch to be. after regulating my SKX's I will reset them every couple weeks, since they are keeping about +/- 5 per day. a mechanical watch will never beat the accuracy of an electric quartz watch.
BoxyTheSpaceDog (1 year ago)
Few seconds really matter in a greater sphere of things,lol.Things people care about out of sheer boredom.
BoxyTheSpaceDog (1 year ago)
I never cared,I wear it,change battery or change for new one once capacitor starts not to hold energy after 5 years or so if watch is automatic.Now you got solar powered that go forever so buying new watch is actually just a bit of a change for me.Who wants to wear one watch whole life?Same goes for cars imo.
cloudzrest (1 year ago)
BoxyTheSpaceDog 20 seconds off day after day and eventually your watch will become unreliable and get you in trouble if you are used to relying on it and not your phone.
Altex lan (2 years ago)
Seiko Automatic is not up to par. so I avoid it. I rather prefer quartz. Solar quartz is the best for me.

baguazhang2 (1 year ago)
It's all personal preference. A mechanical watch is a work of art, while a quartz watch is an appliance. However, high accuracy quartz takes more effort to produce and can be considered somewhere in between

My £12 Winner automatic watch was running 5 minutes an hour fast, so gaining 30 minutes in a morning (Yeah I know , get what you pay for ) BUT after following your instructions and using Audacity it's running super bang on. Thanks :o) Little tip, I used a headphone set from a phone with a built in mic and popped it and the watch in my glasses case to block out background noise if anyone has trouble getting a reading from an inbuilt laptop mic.

Thanks, nice vdo u made there. However my Seiko 5 is now my museum piece, My I tap your expertise if its possible to get an "adapter" so I can use the strap on a watch that came with a leather strap that takes a spring bar 20mm width between the "horns". I cannot trust the shop that gv me a straight 'NO' answer.
Patrol Malik (2 years ago)
Hi, can you give the app.website I can use it. And my watch seiko is slower 5 minutes can I regulate that. Thanks
unacarafea (2 years ago)
You can also very simply check the accuracy of your watch by comparing it to any atomic watch or clock that sets itself once a day to one of the U.S. atomic towers. Atomic watches can be found at very reasonable prices and it's always nice to have that accuracy among your collection of watches.

John Smith (2 years ago)
If you look carefully there is a small extending pointer on the regulating ring,its possible to mark where it is with fine tip pen using a lope (eyeglass)so you can see exactly how much its moved on adjustment.I also use silicon grease on the o ring to ensure its water tight.....dont use Vaseline etc, as it will rot the rubber.

if it wasnt recently cleaned start with that. than try demagnetising it and if nothing else works take it to a watchmaker to have it checked in detail, bcause something might be damaged
Mark Sina-on (2 years ago)
I just bought a seiko 5 automatic watch and after 3 weeks of wearing it, its second hand has a small seconds difference compared to digital time settings from my ipad and laptop. I did adjustments on time without regulating it and after a week the problem is still the same. I read one article that before attempting to open the back of the watch and regulate it, you should try to wear the watch at least 8 hours per day. At night remove the watch from your hand and lay it vertically with the rotating crown facing upwards. I did it for about a week and thank God it worked! The accuracy is the same as the digital watch. But you have to maintain some digital time sources to monitor its accuracy. By just doing the things I mentioned, accuracy is the same as that of digital or even quartz watches. You don't have to wear the watch 24/7 to keep it running. Just wear it at least 8 hours a day and lay it vertically with rotating crown facing upwards when not in use.
Does your Seiko have hand-winding? From what you describe, it sounds like the watch doesn't stay accurate all the way through the power cycle and needs to be kept 'topped up'. Is that what's going on?
George Argyris (2 years ago)
from my experience using many seiko 5s of my collection, before you adjust an entry level automatic watch you should ware it every day for long time lets say 6 months or more.Then if it is necessary you may adjust it in a watchmakers.
Francois Hodler (2 years ago)
Nice video. Tahnks. By the way I use timeanddate.com to get a better time reference. I wear a orient mako. Since 3 years ago it neve moved one second per day. rather 10 seconds every 2 weeks. Unbelievable for a cheap watch.

Gazza-usa (2 years ago)
There is another way of dong this. If you have a Camera strobe such as the Canon Speedlight 550EX you can set it to strobe at 5Hz or any multiple of 5. This will allow you to see if the flywheel is stationary (if so you're dialed in). The speedlights use a crystal for the CPU so they are pretty darn accurate. Use a different strobe frequency for different watches. However I would not trust the waterproof-ness of the watch after taking the back off.
Maxengines Tech (7 months ago)
like tuning an engine, however i dont have that strobe and i dont want to buy it just for tunne a fukin wacth
Scott 1 (9 months ago)
Provided the strobe is exactly 5seconds accurate had to get a strobe that doez not change time really
Steven Wymor (11 months ago)
Depends on the watch. The Seiko SKX173 actually runs at 21,600 beats per hour or 6 ticks per second or 6 Hz.
Haeral (1 year ago)
That's extremely smart, great suggestion.
That's a great tip. As to the waterproofness, there's no need to worry if you lightly coat the o-ring with a little silicone grease and tighten the back with a good tool.
Una Carafea (2 years ago)
Forget about Audacity..... Totally ridiculous and looooong way of doing this. Just get yourself a cheap atomic watch or clock and compare your watch to the atomic time.
td nguyen (2 years ago)
+Una Carafea yea, go ahead and clock yourself for hours until you get it to sync exactly. after a few adjustments using audacity method, i got within -0.00115 sec/min -> that's losing about 1.7 sec/ 24 hrs. yea, totally ridiculous way of doing this.

How often do you regulate the watch?
Awesome Nuclr (3 years ago)
i accidentally hit that little spring and now the wheel wont oscillate any help??
Thomas Krebs (3 years ago)
It works, but only with audacity. Without it would be impossible to check it immediately. I put a little bit pressure (no movement at all) on the lever to slow my watch down (30sec ahead/24h) and checked it with audacity. First it was a little too slow and now it's still 0,013 seconds per minute ahead but that's better than before. This means in 24h the watch is still 19sec too fast but that's ok for me, because it's almost impossible to feel if the lever to regulate has moved or not and I do not want to damage the watch. (because of too much tinkering)
That's a great tip. I learned a similar trick working on cars. Even when you think you aren't moving a frozen part by whacking on it, each time you hit it, it is moving microns. Different scenario, but similar thinking.
td nguyen (2 years ago)
+Thomas Krebs yes, you can. i got within -0.00115 sec/min, which means losing about 2 secs in 24h. the regulator is extremely sensitive, but it's possible to micro adjust in millisecs by not nudging on the lever, but lightly tapping with the micro screwdriver, then check with audacity.
Johan Chandy (3 years ago)
+Thomas Krebs 10 sec sounds great! My watches are off by around 30 secs, I'll probably try to regulate them
Thomas Krebs (3 years ago)
+Thomas Krebs Update: After 24h the watch is now 10sec ahead. (30sec.before)

Santanu DasGupta (3 years ago)
thanks. the best way to measure accuracy is to set it to standard time as on internet and check next day. I just set it to IST and check after 2 days. How old is the watch? It looks beaten up. I am planning to buy a sumo, hope it doesn't get beat up that much.

My P.O.S. "C.O.S.C CERTIFIED" mido watch lose +/- 15 minutes per month since brand new. I've contacted customer service and the place where I've purchased this junk watch and they told me that's "normal" which of course I don't believe it. I KNOW this type of watches gain or lose time to some degree but 15 minutes per month is ridiculous. I wear my P.O.S. mido 24/7 and I'm a normal person (not a sedentary one, and no athletic one either) I'm so furious for spent a substantial amount of money on a machinery that obviously isn't working properly, Stupid me for believe in mido, I bet I was better served with a $10.00 digital casio watch, damn me. :-( Mine is: mido chronometer automatic I wouldn't recommend this Swiss junk.

Thanks so much for posting this! Tried it out tonight, will check back in a few days for accuracy. The insides of my Seiko SKX173 look a little different from yours: both of my regulating bars have only one dot on them. Audacity's current version also looks a little different from the one in the video. Will keep my fingers crossed...

I downloaded Audacity, but couldn't get it to record my watch and the PROBLEM is that my microphone on SKYPE stopped working. The SKYPE call test confirmed that my mike had stopped working.

Never do that, I just did it and it didn't help at all only screwed it up because it stopped working, so I had to go to the watch repair shop and the guy there said that it should be left alone just like they fixed it at the factory.
Zemzem Dağdelen (14 days ago)
the guy who told that is simply wrong. that adjustment lever is present for adjusting the speed of balance wheel since the spring inside of it loses its tension by the time. if it should be left like it came out from the factory, why would they design such a thing?
cloudzrest (10 months ago)
V8 Powerr haha well this process worked great for me and tons of other people who regulated watches themselves, if I couldnt regulate the watch I wouldn't have kept it because it ran so poorly from the factory
