Non-hacking second of Hodinkee Milspec?

Jan 07, 2021,02:28 AM
 

Dear All,
My Milspec finally arrived!
The watch looks good on wrist.
When I adjusted the time, found the second hand is non-hacking.
That surprised me, as I thought FF’s caliber has hacking second.
Took out my FF Barakuda immediately and found to be non-hacking as well.
Could other owners of this Milspec/ Barakuda confirm whether theirs are non-hacking too?
Couldn’t find this info on Blancpain website.
Thank you very much!
Henry

but that appears to be true. It’s not a problem with your particular timepiece. I’m not a fan of non-hacking movements

Superb pic!! Lovely!!!

You can get it to "hack"...

If you turn the crown just slightly counter clockwise in the setting position, the second hand should stop in place while pressure is applied.

Like the Speedy Pro?
