Independents: I might be wrong (and more often than not I am ;))

F.P. Journe: I am curious as to what makes the Linesport watches

more suitable for more sportive activities. I read that the Linesport collection is born as they are owners asking for a Journe that they can wear while engaging in more physical activities. Were there any changes made to the shock absorbing system? Thanks.

Independents: I am also trying to figure out

The difference between Daniel's double impulse escapement and those of similar designs from FPJ and KV. I saw that FPJ's design has no locking jewel in the center of the detent, can't find much details on the KV one. Would anyone have more details? Thanks.

Independents: O&J does cases in tantalum?

That might just tip the balance towards me obtaining one! If I may ask is it much more expensive than their titanium cased watches?

Glashütte Original: I was sent the same literature by GO too

But I'm curious about the case back seal, this photo in particular: As the case back logo is always in the correct alignment, would anyone know how is the caseback sealed? I can't really tell from the photos.
