I still love my Divemaster II.

commented on Do you measure your watches' accuracy? And if you do, by what means? ยท

I use a Weishi timegrapher. For watches that I've assembled myself, I'm generally satisfied with a beat error of 0 to .2ms if it can be achieved in every orientation of the crown. I aim for a gain of no more than 5 secs a day, though that varies with crown orientation as well. With pieces that I've bought, I'm not too bothered if the beat error exceeds .5ms or so, or if it runs +/- 10 secs.

The model number is on the back: 7009-8341. The 7009 refers to the movement and the 8341 is the model.
