In order to pass the chronometer certification, it is necessary to continuously measure for about 15 days with a daily difference of -4 to +6 seconds within the standard range under about 5 different postures and 3 different temperature environments. there is.
Amazingly, only watches that pass the measurement standard can receive the title of chronometer certification.
Caliber B01 is equipped with a power reserve of up to 70 hours and a chronograph function, and the date can be adjusted regardless of the time zone .
When adjusting the date on a mechanical watch, it is recommended that if the hour and minute hands are between 22:00 and 2:00, the hands should be operated at a time other than that time zone before adjusting the date in order to prevent malfunctions caused by the meshing of the internal gears. However, the caliber B01 eliminates the trouble of operating it.
The excellent design that allows the date to be adjusted at any time increases the work efficiency of technical staff during after-sales maintenance, and achieves high-quality maintenance with extremely few human errors.
