    Wow, this is amazing news. So nice to see that mechanical watches can and will develop. I am not 100% sure I would like to listen to the 40 Hz buzzing of the oscillator, but the improvement is amazing. Price-wise it is also very reasonable. It is good the Frederique Constant did it and not, say, Zenith or Omega, prices are much more reasonable. Once the technology is ripe in a few years, I will be certainly interested. Kudos Frederique Constant and collaborators!

    Here's by the way Zenith's version of a similar concept:



    15Hz and the same 6 degree amplitude.

    This brand is no joke ! Impressive from recent brand, this will spot light that they deserve :thumbsup:

    I am just disapointed about the diametre of these watches, 40 mm is the modern standard but a 36-38 mm for a dress watch will always have my preference
