Oh I see, many thanks for that I will try it. I don't think Ive worn it for that long at a time yet. I wonder if it might have something to do with the stem I had to cut down, perhaps it is factor in how the spring is being wound. But it was the one that came with the NH36 movement which come extra long for you to resize to suit whatever case you have.

PBateman commented on How much power reserve should the NH36 have?

It tends to run fast, I have tried to adjust but I don't have a timegrapher so I just let it run fast, probably picks up a minute or 2 per day.

PBateman commented on How much power reserve should the NH36 have?

Yeah I would have allowed for a few hours either way, but 20 hours seems very low.

PBateman commented on How much power reserve should the NH36 have?

Oh I've tried up to 60 turns.

PBateman commented on SOTC

Wow! Nice one. I think that particular casio is about 35 bucks new, it was on its original resin strap but it split as soon as I put it on my wrist. But it has a nice retro charm about it.

PBateman commented on Strap Vendor

Hum, not sure I could pull off leapard skin!

PBateman commented on Strap Vendor

Yes indeed. Very good quality strap, I like the little extra retainer for the keeper nearist the buckle.
