Time for an update. Since last Wednesday I have worn the watch several days and have kept it wound in between. Perhaps a little surprisingly, the watch is fairly accurate-to within 15 seconds per day at least. May be slightly better but it's a non-hacking movement in that pulling the crown does not stop the second hand. Tried a little back pressure on the crown and that doesn't stop it either. Typically, I set my autos to the atomic clock when I wear them. Can't do that real precisely with this watch but I can set the minute hand fairly close to the atomic time. So tracking the accuracy on a piece of paper shows that it stays within 15 seconds per day with roughly 50/50 wear versus idle sitting. Not a huge fan of the domed crystal, on this or other wartches. Like most watch straps, I am on the last hole wearing this one with very little tail for the keeper to keep track of. My wrist is 8 inches and I typically expect to buy XL watch straps for most anything I buy. If I were the owner of this watch I would also purchase an extra long strap. The watch itself looks decent and wears pretty comfortably, overall, I have been pleasantly surprised by the Red Rover. We are having a get together next week so I will keep the watch for that and send it on to the next caretaker on the list which I believe is Ocean late next week. I'll include a couple pics of what the RR and I have been up to since last week.
A buddy and I brewed two batches of Brewtopia IPA homebrew this Monday. I forgot to get any pictures of this activity so I give you a picture of our batches fermenting happily in my storage room this morning. The bubbles in the water bath are carbon dioxide venting to prevent your fermentation container exploding, which is nice. The alcohol produced by the yeasts consumption of wort sugars and oxygen remains. The foam on top is called krausen or something like that, it's German so don't quote me on it.
I took the RR flying on Tuesday. Sorry for the glare, sunlight is not an issue we deal with frequently in these parts. Anyway, this picture is climbing after takeoff from Chehalis, WA. heading home. Note the watch time is consistent with the aircraft clock. I noticed this when I imported the picture to imgur.
