My TC v7 started running fast today (+12 secs in half an hour = ~12 mins per day). I’ve heard that this is often due to magnetisation. Is there a cheap bit of kit I can get on eBay or online that will help me out? Thanks in advance

I bought one from the bay the other day. Let me check which model.
Yes, magnetism will do that.

I don’t know. I’ve heard it can be from relatively innocuous causes. I didn’t have it open or anything. I was at a mall today so maybe a store security beeper or something? FIIK

You could always take to it the chap I recommend in Melbourne. If all fails.

It sounds strange to me, other than balance spring magnetisation could be balance spring with oil residue to be cleaned.

The problem for me is finding the time to get there physically


Perfect thanks!
