NOMOS makes one hell of a movement

I finally got a timegrapher and decided to play around with it. Put all my watches to the test and the winner was my little Orion (ref. 309) running on the alpha calibre. This little guy's a champ!

Proof that ETA derived movements can be every bit as good as "in house" alternatives.

yea, amazing

I actually didn't realize initially that the alpha evolved from the ETA 7001. It is very cool. The "in house" designation is, in large part, a marketing ploy. You don't get any point in my book simply because you are in-house. There are some great ETA and...

I wasn’t able to find any literature online stating the lift angle for the alpha calibre specifically. However I did find literature indicating the lift angle for the ETA/Peseux 7000 (which the alpha calibre ultimately evolved from) is 52 degrees. (See li...

Accuracy + NOMOS Thanks for posting. What about your other watches?

I don’t remember the numbers

 By: Zeitstuck : November 27th, 2020-10:19
But the order of accuracy was was follows: 1. Nomos 309 2. Grand Seiko 9S66 3. Lange L086.5. Rolex 3131. Rolex 3035. 4. Omega 1861 5. Seiko 7S26 My understanding is timegraphers such as these don’t do well with more complicated watches. As such, I take th...
