I'm trying to figure out the beat frequency (or equivalent) of a Bulova Accutron.
According to wikipedia, Accutrons "use a 360 hertz tuning fork," meaning 360 cycles per second.
But according to another website, (eBay Accutron Wristwatch), the tuning fork "vibrates at a rate between 300 and 720 times per second".
Why the discrepancy?
If I stick with 360 Hz, my calculation is that equates to 360 x 60 x 60 = 1.296 million beats per hour (bph). Amazing!
Please feel free to correct my math.
