Timegapher - invest £150 for 10 watch collection?

I am thinking of buying a Weishi 1000 Timegrapher for c. £150. Couple of questions:

  1. Is this overkill for a collection where I send watches off to specialists for servicing? I could see if my local servicer has one that I could use for a small charge

2. Is there a European built timegrapher (Weishi 1000 equivalent) for a similar price?

Thank you for your thoughts


Note, most of the timegraphers out there are rebranded Weishi models. If you buy, or plan on buying a lot of used watches, they pay for themselves.


I have a cheap one and it serves the purpose.  It is a fast and easy way to see how well your watch is running and if it really needs a service or just regulation.


I've had a Weishi 1000 Timegrapher for a while now. I use it for not only regulating movements but checking their overall health. I originally started by using a phone app, which works surprisingly well, but not nearly as good as the timegrapher.

And no, you're not going to find a European made timegrapher for anywhere close to the price of the Weishi. I wish it weren't true, but it is...
