Happy 1. August to all fellow Swiss, and a relaxed Monday to everyone else.

Iβ€˜m just noticing your new profile pic. It’s the Bocadasse, right? Quite remarkable too, in a very different way.

Ahhh.. perfection!

What is the benefit/aim I having 2 frequencies? Thanks. Best, E.

The benefit is to have a 65 days power reserve

In simplified terms: while a high frequency gives you high precision, it will reduce your power reserve. Normally what watchmakers do is they find a compromise at the sweet spot of precision they need vs. PR they want. With the Twin Beat, VC chose a diffe...
