I know that everybody likes their watch to be as accurate as possible that’s why everybody likes hacking feature on their automatics when they start em back up. I was thinking when the watch dies on like 47 seconds I would use an accurate time spice like atomic time clock or time.gov and then when that reaches 47 or whatever time your watch stopped and start winding or shaking it. Granted it won’t be accurate throughout the day since mechanical efficiency, power reserves affects rate and you can’t do it again until it dies again but at least it would somewhat accurate. Just a dumb idea I thought of so don’t be too hard on me haha.
You make a point. If accuracy is what your after then maybe mechanical isn't the way to go. I like my watches to be more or less within a few seconds each day. I'm not timing things over a very long period of time so a few seconds here and there won't bother me much. If I can wear it in my weeks rotation and not have to readjust I'm happy and don't consider it needing a service.
With most of my Seiko automatics the action of picking them up will give the MS a bit of a wind that will run the seconds hand pulling the crown out etc may do the same.
