    When Will We See the Diapal in other models?

    Any Rumors, Guesses?

    Is it possible to have a Diapal movement in a non chrono watch? or is it only possible in a chrono movement?

    My understanding based on an article I read somewhere is that the Diapal escapement system found in the 756 will be adapted to other movements and will eventually make it's way into the higher end Sinn line-up. Think argon gas and copper/sulphate. It started with the Arktis and ended up in many models. It took some time as it was slowly introduced but it is now widely available.

    I don't have a timeframe on this but from what I understand this is the planned route for diapal.

    Anyone remember how long it took from the intro of Ar in the Arktis watch to show up in other models?

    Somebody correct me if I'm wrong but I think the Arktis came out in '97 or '98 and a few years later it started to make it's way into other models.

    Hope somebody with better info can add to this.
