"This paper describes a new quartz watch driving system we developed. With this system, the second hand of a wrist watch moves smoothly as if it is sweeping. An intermittent movement of the stepping motor is transferred to a smooth sweeping motion due to the spiral spring and the viscous regulator.

commented on What is your size range? ยท

32-36mm works well for my 6-inch wrist. Omega Seamaster Polaris and Constellation (32mm) are my smallest and CasiOak (45mm) is my largest. I'd like to try a 39mm Alpinist, but I'm not sure it will work.

The full lume is cool. I like the green accents too. I just think he should've chosen a typeface more compatible with the rest of the watch.
