    Neodymium in a watch case - anyone know if it's used?

    This question is pretty much as per the title. Does anyone know of any watch companies that use rare earth magnets (Neodymium) within the case construction? I'm thinking about using them for the push button activation on a chronograph.

    Breitling uses magnets in the pushers of one of their diving chronographs. I'm not sure which type, could be rare earths.
