The chronograph section of this movement bears an incredibly strong resemblance to the Piguet 1185 and I've got to take exception with this line:
"Obviously, this is a more complicated solution than that employed by other watchmakers. . . "
A significant number of modern chronographs employ such a coupling. The aforementioned Piguet 1185, the Omega 3300 series movements, the Rolex 4130 and the Breguet 550 all come to mind. One of the advantages of such a system is that it is much easier/more economical to produce (which is not to say that the performance advantages are imaginary by any means), as evidenced in part by Seiko's choice to use such a system in their many automatic chronographs produced from 1969 through the late '70s.
This looks like a wonderful movement and I can only imagine that there are many important advancements/refinements, but I think the marketing speak is a little thick in some respects. I do not mean to be a wet blanket and I do sincerely appreciate getting an early look at what is clearly an exceptional piece of work (the watch and movement).
