    Within a fraction of a minute a month. Have had it since 2000 but have adjusted it only a couple times. My daily watch is a Raymond Weil, Tango model. It's pretty close to that time, now. Had a basic Casio digital for running, years ago. Lasted a decade and was off only occasionally. That thing would survive anything. Misplaced it, at some point. Best $16.95 watch ever made.

    Mine is lightweight and very accurate but, I hardly wear it since I take my phone with me everywhere and the time is right there on the phone.
    So my watch is now redundant and I always hated long sleeves - wearing watches and even finger rings. I don't even wear my wedding ring. It already got smashed once on my finger and that was enough.
    Sorry Wife...no wedding ring but, you will always and eternally be a heavy BALL & CHAIN lovingly shackled around my heart.
    Cell phones automatically and constantly correct their time so the "cell time" is always right on.

    So in short...anybody wanna buy a watch?
    No really...it's not for sale.

    I also have a solid gold Hamilton pocket watch that I was given for exemplary service at a job that makes want to wretch every time I think back on it - or look at it - and I never carry that because it reminds me of how much TIME (a decade) of my life I wasted there.
    I always carry too much other "STUFF" in my pockets anyway.

    I hardly ever wear my wristwatch anymore.

    mine usually has the month right, sometimes even the date LOL .
    Make sure you get full value out of today , Do something worthwhile, because what you do today will cost you one day off the rest of your life .

    Mine loses a couple of seconds per month. One of these days I'll have to get a good one.

    Mine's right twice a day....

    Seriously, I also have a Timex Expedition--two actually--one on my wrist and one on my rucksack (as a backup). Actually used the backup when deployed--battery died two months into the deployment. Best $20 I spent.

    I'm one of the techno-nerds with my atomic wristwatch. Based on that site, it's under a second fast, but that's probably just because it's been 15hrs since it last synced.

    I wore a watch every day and at all times (except bed & shower) since I learned how to tell time over thirty years ago.

    Last month, I accidentally walked out of the apartment wihtout it and I haven't put it on since. I literally felt like I was watching my life "tick" away ("time to get up", "time to make the donuts", "time for lunch", etc.......). FREEDOM!

    My friends STILL can't believe it.
    It's not about the caliber you carry, it's about how you USE it.
