    Very happy they changed the Power Reserve indicator. Looks even more like an updated Ceramic XV.

    This has actually one of the better descriptions of the Amortizer system. Ball did a good job on the write-ups this year. More technical and less marketing then in the past.

    That is 1.5 times a normal EHC. Most others also stop at 5000.

    Is there a reason why the tickmarks for the power reserve go farther than the "swoosh"? It looks like they added tickmarks to equal the length of the gauge and then added the word "empty" which pushed the tickmarks past the edge.

    You don't know? That's because the power reserve on this watch goes to "11"..
