Note: There is also a caliber 8200 which is the same as the 8210 but has a day/date instead of just a date on the 8210.

You got lucky. Mine came with +16s/d and a beat error of 2ms out of the factory. I opened, adjusted the beat error to 0.0-0.2ms, and regulated the watch to within COSC parameters. Beautiful watch, love the tone of yellow.
