Does Magnetism wear-off?

In an act of extreme stupidity I accidentally left my 2000 series in a drawer right next to some neodium magnets (which were out-of-sight, I hasten to add) overnight.

Unsurprisingly, the balance/spring (or some other component) has become magnetised and the watch is running around 4 minutes fast per day

1) Is there a quick-fix for this?
2) Will the magentism wear-off over time?

Hitting my head against the wall repeatedly,

Don't blame yourself. . .

. . .happens to the best of us. It is as far as I know very straighforward to run a watch through a demagnetizer- I've never had to do it/have it done myself but it should be a matter of a few minutes to demagnetize a watch and check the rate. One of the easier problems to fix and it doesn't even involve opening the case, IIRC.

Unfortunately, magnetism "doesn't wear off". Any quality
