    the movement may be affected by the motion imparted to it by your moving about (ie it's sticking at certain angles). If it keeps good time sat still and continues to work then I'd say that the battery itself is fine.

    It's even possible that the movement is loose within the casing, especially if you've dropped it at some point?

    What's the watch?

    Digital or analogue?
    If analogue it may be a loose battery connection and certain angles break the connection, I'm assuming digital would reset itself and be more obvious.

    Keeping time beautifully now. 4.5 turns shorter than previously. Just wonder if in winter it will start gaining time.
    Taipans problem sounds like a loose mechanism.
