    Compass needle not moving, so it doesn't look like magnetization is the issue. Oddly enough, the needle moved a bit on a couple other watches that are keeping perfect time.

    I opened up the case back (already had the tool) and am taking an attempt to regulate it on my own. This isn't working, I'm just going to email orient and try to send it back in.

    Yeah, might be a good idea. I wore my Bambino for a few days this week and it kept perfect time. This, after not having worn it for maybe close to a month. Hopefully Orient will be able to get things running for you.

    Yeah, I wouldn't tinker with it personally. Just get the pros to regulate it or figure out if the movement has an issue.

    You really need a timegrapher to regulate a watch otherwise it becomes a several day process (move a tiny amount and wait). A timegrapher gives you almost real time reading to make adjustments and/or judge the condition of a automatic/manual movement. http://www.wristtimes.com/blog-1/201...-a-timegrapher

    I have a few orients (and some seiko autos too) and I think they are all within a minute or so a week one way or the other. But I also rotate often enough that it doesn't really matter because they end up stopping while I'm not wearing them.
