    Question BR126, date changing?

    Hello everybody!

    I am the happy new owner of a B&R 126 Vintage (for 2 weeks!). Few days ago, i noticed that the date on the watch changed 3/4 minutes before midnight. Next day, the problem was the same.
    Then , since i was on a trip with a different time zone, when i change the hour of my new time zone, i decided to check that thing once again. The phenomena was and is still there.
    So my question is: is it normal or is there a problem with the watch?

    This excepted, i'm really fond of this watch!

    Thanks for helping and regards,

    Vincent

    I think its normal. You have a tolerance on the date change, and generally as far as i know the date may change between 11:55 and 00:05.
    wont bother me if i was in your place

    Post a picture of your watch if you have some time

    its common for it to change a couple of mins before/after midnight, depending on the watch.

    ok thanks for the answer!
    It doesn't really bother me, i just wanted to know if it's normal or not because it's my first watch with "jumping" (not sure of the term, my english is not perfect ).

    Thank you, pics are coming soon!

    edit: there they are. I took it with a wristlet in alligator (i also kept the one in leather) to give him a more class aspect
