月初买了MIDO(美度)手表,戴了半个月,发现快了一分零几秒。
跑到商场,销售小姐说新手表买来后走快很正常,调校一段时间后就会好的。
对手表这块不太熟,想请教对这方面比较懂行的朋友:
销售小姐的说法是正确的还是在忽悠人?
如果手表偏快,有何简易的解决办法?会不会是经常坐在电脑跟前受磁场影响有关?
谢谢!

電子手錶是有相當的精準度,誤差會較小,除非電磁有問題。機械錶誤差會比較普遍。在香港,美度算是老品牌,是有信譽的,要看看出世紙,決定是冒牌貨與否。

Watches Aug 20, 2009

Yes, high-end watches need to be purchased from reputable sources. For example, watchmakers such as Rolex have authorized dealers. Therefore, it's typically impossible to acquire a new authentic Rolex anywhere else but from these dealers, at least in the U.S.

So, my suggestion would be to determine first if what you've purchased is a real Swiss-made Mido, and then go from there.

Here's a link I found that talks about the basics of timepiece movements and how to make minor adjustments. I would think your watch falls into the category of mechanisms that require professional care, as the section I've cut and pasted indicates.



http://wiki.answers.com/Q/Your_automatic_watch_watch_runs_to_fast_how_do_you_slow_it_down

... The exception is what's called a "free sprung" balance, which does not have a system for altering the effective end location of the hairspring and instead relies on adjustments of the balance to retain accuracy. Don't attempt to regulate these yourself unless you're a skilled watch maker. I believe all current Jaeger-LeCoulter models are free sprung, as are Rolex, and the new Omega Co-axials, as well as many other high quality watches. Generally speaking, a free sprung balance is a superior system since, once set up and regulated professionally, it's not going to change. But, it requires more skill and time during manufacture or repair to get it properly dialed in to begin with.



BTW, sitting in front of a computer all day shouldn't affect the accuracy of a good watch, IMO.

IMO, expensive men's watches are usually seen as luxury items. To most people, they are typically worn as accessories anyway, instead of being of utilitarian value. So as long as the watch is genuine, I wouldn't worry about it being off a little. icon_smile.gif

我老公的Rolex全是在中国买的。已经至少换过三个了,还送人呢!

反正一块表用不到一年就坏了。最好的那块儿大约用了一年半左右。

Thank you for presenting the relevant information, Steven.

Sure, I purchased this Mido watch from a well-known and reliable shopping mall in my city. In fact, just because I don't trust online shopping much, I passed on another brand unavailable in my city which I liked too.

Maybe someday I should turn to some professional watch mechanic for help:)
