“Chronometry is very important; we are really pushing chronometry,” says Claude Greisler, CEO and technical director of Armin Strom. And Pure Resonance walks the talk: thanks to the double balance working in resonance, its accuracy is approximately 15 per cent to 20 per cent better than the COSC ...
Tissot continues to prove its status as an innovator with the exceptional Tissot Ballade. Pushing the boundaries of possibility, this watch shows just why the brand has been acclaimed time and time again, winning international chronometry competitions and revolutionising the watch industry. Now, it is the ...

The firm's timepieces, produced in limited editions only, have won some of the most coveted honours, including a Red Dot Design Award (Best of the Best category), gold and bronze medals in the Chronometry Competition, a Robb Report “Best of the Best” award, a “Chronograph of the year” distinction ...
The organizer and its hosts declare open season on the last starting spots: register now online on suddenrush.laax.com until February 21, 2018 and secure your participation-ticket for happiness in a chronometry snowboard race.

Earlier this month, we got to see horological rock star Kari Voutilainen team up with Armin Strom to release a limited run of the latter's Mirrored Force Resonance. This week at SIHH, however, Armin Strom was back to announce the Pure Resonance, which the brand describes as being focused entirely on ...
In recognition of his contribution to the field, Louis XVIII honoured A-L Breguet with the official title of chronometer-maker to the French royal navy — a very prestigious title, considering that the essence of marine chronometry required advanced scientific knowledge. Today, under the eagle eye of its ...

Its products are particularly renowned in the area of chronometry. This desire to be leader in terms of precision has made El Primero the most legendary chronographer of all time. The movement has an entire collection bearing his name. It contributes to the success of the brand with the star emblem the ...
To determine when the decision was made, the researchers used the technique called "mental chronometry" - that is, after they made their decision, the participants were asked to move the clock backward to the point when they felt that they had consciously done so. "The moment in time indicated by the ...
The Kerbedanz A'Ghrian has undergone tough testing set up by the Chronometry Competition – Le Locle 2015 since May 28, 2015. The first stage in the process, the actual nomination, is already considered a victory in itself by professionals, scientists and the specialized media. Because many of those registered, never ...

While it is true that we no longer expect a mechanical timepiece to beat the chronometry of a quartz watch or a tourbillon movement to be more robust than a digital smartwatch's motherboard, the effort does not go unnoticed. As a matter of fact, the amazing horological acrobatics that follows is precisely why ...

By using double tourbillons - hence the name - Greubel Forsey was able to achieve first place with an unheard of score of 915 out of 1,000 points at the International Chronometry Competition. After meticulous testing, the hand wound caliber was found to have a timekeeping accuracy of far below one ...

“But then suddenly in the 1890s, digital displays weren't fashionable anymore,” says Seyffer. “People went back to the traditional way of telling the time.” IWC and other companies ceased production. A bitterly disappointed Rauschenbach turned his attention to precision chronometry, and the futuristic watch ...

Zenith has won 2,232 first prizes in the grand prix of chronometry, and it is the only brand that has won that many prize for accuracy. Zenith has always been, throughout its history, obsessed with accuracy, which was not always the case with TAG Heuer or Hublot. They also tried to make accurate watches, ...

Resonance is a physics principle that, to be honest, most people will never need to know to go about their daily lives. So what is all the hubbub about resonance? It is a word that is, even in the watch world, so mysterious and rare that it is heard only once or twice a decade (unless you're specialized in such ...
As compliance spreads into future movements, chronometry and durability are likely to improve. But the invention could be more deeply disruptive. Compliant mechanisms have to potential to upset centuries of watchmaking by fundamentally changing movement architecture and assembly. In the hands of ...

Which doesn't mean that Rolex is resting on its laurels: refreshed designs over the decades and a draconian quality control test – known as the Superlative Chronometer certification, which has a precision tolerance of just -2/+2 seconds per day that outdoes even the official COSC-chronometry standards ...
Costa has spent years learning to coax such stories out of tiny volcanic crystals with a technique he helped develop, known as diffusion chronometry. And it's catching on. "It's one of those techniques that is about to explode in popularity," says Tom Sisson, a volcanologist at the U.S. Geological Survey in ...
Vertalor has just won the International Chronometry Competition. The organizer's analogy offers a perfect summary of the demanding standards for the contest: “the Chronometry Competition is the equivalent of five Formula 1 Grand Prix races – without a single pit stop!” The scientific validity of the Competition is based on ...
