  1. I bought my first Rolex, the GMT Master II ceramic in May 2009. I absolutely love this watch, but the only problem was that it wasn't accurate. After 14 months of ownership, it was gaining about 9 seconds/day. I brought it back to watch maker from Ben Bridges (where I bought the watch), and he had made the adjustments. When I got the watch back, it started to gain even more, ~22.5 seconds/day. It's been 8 months now, and I've measured the gain at least 4 times, over a 10 day period, and every time, I calculate I gain ~22.5 seconds/day. Last week, I brought it back to the Ben Bridges, the same watch maker told me today that my watch is working perfect and that he only measured a gain of 4 seconds over 8 days. How can there be such a large discrepancy? I never take off my watch and I don't work near magnets or anything out of the ordinary. I asked that they ship my watch back to Rolex for repair/check up, since it's still under the 2 year warranty. Did I do the right thing, ask them ship it back to Rolex, or should I try to bring the watch to another authorized dealer and ask for a second opinion? Any advice or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
