A watch running that fast could also be the result of being magnetized, pick up a cheap demagnetizer off amazon.

I have too many vostoks... Many of them from the 80's and all of them have been regulated to below +/- 10 spd, three of them run basically dead-nuts.

The staff are watch people, and super chill. When I visit, they are excited to show you what you want to see, but not hard sales attitude. They also have a bunch of regional micro-brands like @orionwatches, Towson Watch Company, @TsaoBaltimore. They are an Grand Seiko AD and their selection in second to none.

@sam_kula I'm in Olney, and also a microbrand fan- we should do coffee.
