    Greg,
    Not sure if you missed my post of a few weeks ago.
    I have similar from an Invicta Professional Dive watch. Looks and feels like a 
    Rolex Submariner. I have worn it 24/7 for the last 4 months and it keeps a 
    consistent + 4-8secs going rate.(never varied beyond that range, checked 
    daily).

    An affordable mechanical wrist watch has been found that will I think meet the 
    minimum celestial navigation needs of the 2018 Golden Globe Race 
    participants. The Orient Ray II automatic divers watch ( $150 new on ebay ) 
    can be hand wound and hacked. The Japanese made movement will keep very 
    consistent time as long as the watch is worn on the wrist or kept in a pocket 
    to maintain a stable temperature.

     I own a less expensive Orient Flight watch which is non- hacking and keeps 
    consistent time at -2.5 sec/day which I'm very happy with in a mechanical 
    watch.
