    Just listened to the Worn And Wound Podcast where they interviewed Rob Caplan from Topper and Chad Tsagris, head of Laco USA. It was interesting to hear about the collaborative process and the obstacles they faced in creating this beautiful timepiece.

    Here’s a link to the podcast for those who wish to listen.

    It's no big deal to hack the seconds hand on a 6498 using the back hacking method. Mark from Long Island Watch explains it here very clearly and demonstrates the process...I appreciate you may already know this, so I'm just throwing this out for anyone who doesn't.

    Once again, for a 649X, this is only possible when its power reserve is VERY LOW. I just did an experiment with a Towson Watch containing a 6498. Starting from a dead stop, 1 wind allowed hacking, 2 winds will allow hacking, 3 winds will allow hacking, 4 winds will NOT allow hacking. Good luck. heb

    I'm not sure this method is good for the entire movement if you use it too often.

    Anyway, 24 hours later the time setting won't be correct in the region of seconds, so why do this?

    I've done back-hacking one or two times, but always felt like I was destroying the movement, so I avoid doing it. Part of the charm is a hand-wound movement with no hacking. You can still measure accuracy, with apps like WatchCheck.
