Accurist Grand Complication

Recommended Posts

I have a Accurist Grand Complication GMT322 watch and I have noticed that the main second hand is slightly off the 60 second mark.  I have tried to reset it with instructions from the internet but they only seem to work with normal chronograph watches.  Can anyone help?  Thanks.  :king:

Cant help you but i know what you`re going through, to most people its much ado about nothing and only you will notice it, but the fact remains when you know its there it bugs you.

Ive got a similar irk, with my watch its the fact that when the minute hand is on the hour, the hour hand isnt quite flush on some of the hour markers,for example 5.00 might be ok, but 11.00 and the hour hand might be ever so slightly playing catch up, like i say its only a tad off but its there and i cant help looking at it!

Slightly off sometimes happens even with good watches :(   Have you got the specific resetting instructions for that watch.....they vary a lot from just pulling out the crown and pressing the pushers to pressing both pushers until the second hand does a 360 then alternating pushers for various hands.  On yet others one pusher moves the adjustment from dial to dial, and the other pusher zeros.   Try some combinations BUT if it is a tiny bit try and ignore it. :thumbsup:

Usually, by pulling out the crown, then pressing one of the pushers, the second hand can be advanced one second at a time. Is this what you've already tried?

Edit: Sorry, Rog beat me to it...

Thanks for all your replies.  I looked at the instructions and after a few choice words with it I managed to reset it and it is now bang on the 60 second mark.  Calm has been restored! Thanks again!  :thumbsup::king:
