    Re: what's this meca quartz hybrid?

    i'm oversimplifying it because i haven't done extensive research on HOW it works, but from what i understand, the clock portion of the watch runs on a quartz (so the seconds sub-dial ticks), but the chronograph runs on a main spring so you get that smooth sweeping motion when you start it.

    i'm not sure if the quartz provides power to the main spring or vice versa, but i think some high-end manufacturers have dabbled in them so it's probably not BAD. IMO it seems pretty cool.

    If I'm not mistaken it's the movement introduced in this post:

    thanks guys

    so is it like some of the ISA movements where the chronograph seconds hand sweep?
    or like the seiko movement in the issey miyake quartz chronograph series where the seconds hand tick but the stopwatch seconds hand sweep?

    Not a fan because it requires a battery :(
    Climbing and falling, with tip of tongue
    running laps around the hollow drain,
    three men remembers their bitter ex-dates
    passing by, their names flipped into a bottom

    The thread is from 2013 and you brought it back from the dead. So it's a zombie thread.

    And your comment wasn't addressing the original question, or another poster, so it was disconnected.
