Time to bring out the heavy metal

Long time since I posted the Twin Beat. Feels beautiful on the wrist!

Enjoy a wonderful day, dear friends!

A real gentleman's watch.

Thanks for showing this fine piece of Swiss engineering. Have a good day yourself! George

Daniel you win the WPS posts for today

Wow wow wow what a marvel

Not sure if I deserve this honor...

 By: mrds : September 3rd, 2020-10:09
but thank you very much for the kind words and hope you enjoy it as much as I do! Cheers, Daniel

Can't deny the fact that

is beautiful. What exactly does the Hz mode change do?

65 days power reserve

 By: ashot : September 3rd, 2020-07:27
does it sleep when on 1.2Hz mode?

It doesnโ€˜t sleep,

 By: mrds : September 3rd, 2020-10:40
but it slows down to a power-saving 1.2 Hz oscillation, which allows it to go on for 65 days until power runs down. In active mode at 5 Hz, power reserve is 4 days. The video at mdgโ€˜s post above shows how it works. Best, Daniel

That is something! [nt]

This is what happens when VC flexes their muscles. Real innovation there.

Examples like this is probably what appeals to me most in contemporary watchmaking. A little of the old; perpetual calendar, a little of the new; use of sapphire layers, and some innovation; the twin beat feature. In my opinion, this is just a super cool ... 

Thanks a lot, and I fully share your feelings!

 By: mrds : September 3rd, 2020-10:45
The combination of old school technology and traditional craftsmanship combined with avant-garde movement and design is what the Twin Beat is about for me. Shows VCโ€˜s enormous capabilities like no other of their watches imho. Thanks for the appreciation, ... 

The systematic.entropy handle stuck from my university days

 By: systematic.entropy : September 3rd, 2020-12:26
I'm a mechanical engineer by education, and the idea of "systematic" (order) "entropy" (disorder), is just novelty. However, that being said, in figuring out what watches I like and how I want to collect, I've arrived at being one who is attracted to nove... 

I can relate.

 By: mrds : September 4th, 2020-00:22
I'm also an engineer by training and I fully share your values. What watches/brands are you attracted to most? In terms of innovation, it's mostly the independents for me, with De Bethune, Urwerk being a constant temptation. Other independents that are do... 

Lol, very much the same

 By: systematic.entropy : September 4th, 2020-06:15
I'm continually ironing out what appeals to me. There's what I appreciate, and there's what I want. I fully appreciate the design freedom and artistic flair of independents like MB&F, Urwerk, and De Bethune. I appreciate the technical prowess of FP Jo...

Thanks a lot, Alex

Thanks, Miguel. [nt]

An engineering tour de force

 By: VinnieD : September 3rd, 2020-10:43
Congratulations for acquiring this piece. I love the concept behind it. You can feel good about it even if you wear it rarely - even once every 65 days should be enough!

No. Once every 65 days is not nearly enough! ๐Ÿ˜„

 By: mrds : September 3rd, 2020-10:50
Brings me too much joy to leave it in the drawer for so long.. Thank you, Vinnie!

A true masterpiece and very beautiful VC

I never use a camera myself

Thank you, dear Jurry.

Longing for a post of your 1921 in return ;-) Have a wonderful Saturday! Daniel

Both are stunning works of art

 By: mrds : September 22nd, 2020-10:56
But the 1921 has a special place in my heart! Either way, youโ€˜ll make us happy with your next post. Have a great day, my friend. Daniel
