Jan,
I would specualate that the larger watch factories have also asked the same question. They certainly have the financial muscle to get ultra high speed recording equipment and analyze the individual events taking place. I think another less expensive way to find out would be to take a watch, hook it up to the timer, and then intentionally turn the hairspring collar to throw the watch out of beat. Then look at the readings to see how the overall performance is affected. I would think that anything that comes in around 1 minute a month or less would be good. This would put the beat at .00138 or about 1 1/2 milliseconds. If I am wrong go ahead and shoot me but remember, no one else stuck their neck out on this one.
