How to Read Timegrapher Results

57 posts in this topic

There will be 2 lines

 

 

 

There will be only one line if you have a beat error of 0.0ms and if there is two lines the bigger the beat error the wider apart the lines will be......

I have found my timegrapher 1000 ($150) to be right on the money as far as if the timegrapher says +5 s/d dial up and I leave the watch dial up for 24 hours it runs +5 s/d, if your watch spends a lot of time on your wrist in a certain position most of the time I would suggest making that the main position for adjusting the watch and then wear it a few days and if it's let's say +4 s/d adjust it in it's main position -3 s/d and check it again by wearing it for a few more days and you should be good to go......

I know this is pinned, but I wanted to just say thanks for this info.  It's unbelievably helpful.

In that same vein I'm hoping someone can explain the lines on the pictured results.

I have strong suspicion looking at the amplitude and lift angle that this is an Omega Co Axial watch that has been measured on standard/automatic settings.

The Co Axial movement needs special settings with a lift angle of around 30 degrees. Otherwise you get this very high amplitude reading.

Just guessing that this was just a quick test, not under Omega service conditions?

I can't decipher all the readings but it has been measured in 'positions' and is running to COSC spec. Very nice spec!

Interesting that this was done at Omega but not on Co Axial settings?

The face up amplitude of 336 is pretty high but I would expect the face up or down to be the highest reading but the other 2 look very good and there is only a 4 degree difference between them, I'd like to see a little lower beat error than the 0.4 on the one but really what I want is perfection which is unreasonable so all and all not bad numbers really..... :^)
