i have nearly the same watch with the same movement. VERY accurate. i just reset my watch for the first time today in about 3 months. It lost only 45 seconds over that time, incredible accuracy.

45 seconds over 3 months is highly unlikely and would be better than COSC. An elabore grade 2824-2 movement accuracy is +/-7 sec/day up to +/- 20 sec/day.

Just to be clear this watch is good, but no one should ever expect to be anywhere close to the accuracy you're claiming.

It is a normal elabore grade 2824-2 movement, there is nothing special or accurate about the movement. It's a cheap reliable workhorse that gets put in nearly every budget automatic watch. Overall it is pretty far down on the accuracy rankings, but a good value for $320

its the H-10 movement, based on the 2824 but its the hamilton modification that goes for 80 hours due to the frequency going from 28,000 BPH to 21,600 BPH. the picture of the watch back in the listing shows the H-10 movement, not the 2824-2. the newer hamiltons have. the H-10 has done really well on accuracy.

i am able to get mine well within COSC by the position i put the watch in each night when im sleeping

The H10 is nothing but a retool of the 2824 with a regular 2 jewel/steel escapement. Lowering the beat rate increases power reserve but does not improve accuracy. It does not provide any additional accuracy over the 2824. It is not COSC certified and your claim is very far outside of what someone should expect to see. I'm glad you like your watch but it's better to provide realistic expectations for buyers. Buyers have very little chance of ever obtaining the accuracy you're claiming.

Buyers should expect unregulated accuracy to be within +/-7 sec/day up to +/- 20 sec/day. If they get extremely lucky and it is better, then that is great but shouldn't be expected.
