So I sent off my Vortex (#131) to the nice folks at MCWW to get regulated along with my SKX173. Two birds with one stone kinda thing. I never officially tracked the loss/gain of the Vortex. I should have done it anyway as a baseline. I got an email from them today with the following results.. Looks like the factory already did a good job of getting it regulated. bravo.gif Jay said he'll make fine adjustments if necessary once it's on my wrist and I actually keep track of it this time. The below figures are unadjusted by MCWW.

Dial Up            rate = +3     Amplitude = 275      beat error = 0.1
3:00 down       rate = +9     Amplitude = 254      beat error = 0.1
12:00 down     rate = +1     Amplitude = 260      beat error = 0.0

Yeah’a always great when good stuff happens!  Although I purchased my Vortex from the sales boards, I saw the regulation time print out (?) from Anders/Dievas in the box …. ThumbsUp02.gif

I'm doing some impromptu testing on the watch. I left it 12:00 down for 24 hrs and it gained +7 secs. I'm going to leave it on my watch winder for 24 hrs to see how much it gains. I set the winder to rotate clockwise for 6 mins and rest for 30 mins. This cycle will continue until tomorrow at 10am.

So 24 hrs on the winder yielded only a +5 sec gain. It's on the wrist today.. sponge bob.gif

Long term update:
I'm happy to say that my Vortex has settled in with a very nice +4 secs per day on the wrist. It's my best time keeping watch to date. party.gif

My son is quite happy with his own Vortex. It gives the same numbers you have although worn on rotation but shaken and moved around a lot at night when he gets home from work.
