    In my opinion well-calibrated is the instrument is calibrated with standard method for using in specific work such as you have to calibrate for testing QC respect to ASTM or any standard but validated is suitable for some work which you're mentioned, for example if I'm doing thesis or some work which no need the specific standard method, something that valid for your assumption is enough. In the other word, say that it OK for this but less accuracy respect to well-calibrated I'm not native person, my english is not s effluence ^^"
