Very interesting story about the Italian Navy... I hadn’t heard that before.
If I’m nit picking, and lets make no mistake about it that I really am, the reference to the co-axial escapement dramatically increasing mechanical watch accuracy and durability is inaccurate. Durability maybe, but the co-axial is no more or less accurate than the Swiss lever escapement based on what I’ve read, and experienced with my own modern watches.
Thanks for posting!
