GMTII Question

Post by maverick » January 23rd 2021, 6:18pm

I have a 116710LN bought new. It's a very early Z81.. serial number. Two years ago it got it's first service and been fine since. It now is off by one hour. I corrected that and a day or two later it was one hour off. I thought I didn't set it right and took some time making sure it set it correctly. It became one hour off again???? I have never heard of this problem. Since it can be set one hour at a time apparently it can be off one hour at a time. It's going back to Dallas SC Monday. The 2 year warranty just ran out a few months ago. They said they might make some price adjustments due to that fact. I will have to wear either a Casio or my 116500LN. I will miss my GMT while it's gone. :-( This have been a super watch for me and has lots of memories like 50K+ miles on a Harley. :-) This is why a Rolex is worth the price. I paid less than 6K new and will have to insure it for over 13K.

Nice watch and hopefully the repair bill is not painful. Have you given your watch a full manual wind thats 40 plus full crown turns clockwise only dont worry as you cannot over-wind it.

Doubtful it has been magnetized.

Late update. Due to the problems in Texas (utilities and weather) my GMT II was stranded there for longer than I would have expected. It's returned and there were no notes regarding repair. It was under warranty so I have no idea what was done. It's fine now and that is all that matters to me. Next time I need a service center i think I will go back to Beverly Hills which is much closer and past experiences have been good there.
