Travelers, automatic watches and airport metal detectors... TWCO
 
Last flight DEN to DFW suddenly my watch was running super fast (TWCO bought here on THT). Jay recommended demagnetizing it. A little Youtube instruction, an $11.88 Amazon overnight package, and the watch is running just fine.

At DIA they had to keep resetting the metal detector (TSA Prepass) and I am thinking I got hit with a big magnetic field that affected the spring.

Anyway, if your automatic starts running fast, this might be a cheap fix for you as well. Hasn't lost more than a second or two in 24 hours - probably better than it was when I received it.

Cheers!
