            What should I do if my Automatic watch gain/ lose few seconds?

            If your watch loses or gains a few seconds per day, you can correct it without expert aid.

            We suggest the following methods to adjust gain/ lose time for watch:

            Method 1:

            The hairspring in the movement probably got stuck and caused the movement to gain/lose time. 

            Suggestion is while you wear your watch and shaking your wrist at half the speed of the watches working frequency (3 times per second) for 5 seconds. Most customers found this solution working perfectly and now keeps time accurately.

            Method 2:

            The rate of a watch varies slightly depending upon its position. You can take it off at night and place it as follows:

            1. To gain a few seconds:
            Lay the watch flat with the dial uppermost.
             
            2. To lose a few seconds:
            Lay the watch vertically with the winding-button downwards.
             
            3. To lose rather more seconds:
            Lay the watch vertically with the winding-button uppermost.
