Yes indeed you are right, I am not a technical expert, but had the impression the idea was similar, while it is probably not !

Vincent presented yesterday, on sept 11th (a memorable date) at Vicenza Oro in Italy, the CATALYS. "Throughout my life, I have endeavoured, with the help of poetry and philosophy, to change the habits of the watchmaking world. It is with great pleasure th...  

Thank you Fabrice

You should read many Italian revues soon ;-)

Not so sure about this

If something works, why fix it?

Let's wait and see if this is really a fix

Having been fooled, conned, burned and swindled more than a few times by press conferences, often well-meaning inventors, and business men. I like Calabrese and have owned several of his watches. He is a VERY clever guy, but to say "The Spiral Hairspring ... 

Very interesting, thanks Patrick

Let's see whet the experts say (sorry I am not qualified enough to judge). As you say this could possibly be a litte revolution... or not. In any case whatever the result it is thanks to such gifted watchmakers that the technique is moving forward. Merci ... 

Great to see new innovations

To think always ideas that comes alive. The silicon oscillator is just there, the silicon hairspring and silicon balance wheel for awhile. I loved always the tech around spirals. If the spiral is out of a watch, it feels for me a bit of the soul is taken ... 

I suppose you refer to their new oscillator

" That oscillator, beating at an unprecedented 288,000 vibrations an hour, about 40Hz, brings a motherlode of modern innovation to such a classic execution. At that rate, the Slimline Monolithic Manufacture ticks at 10 times the speed of most mechanical m... 

Very interestiing

Answers about FRICTION

 
 By: patrickh : October 18th, 2021-18:55
Vincent CALABRESE: "There is no body in motion without friction! One of the subtleties of Calasys is that the friction of the Calasys is continuous, therefore controllable ... You just have to calculate it well and apply the appropriate solutions that I h...  

Could this be the next step ?

Good one. Hopefully
