    Morgenwerk

    Anyone else as excited about these as I am? A high accuracy thermocompensated satellite watch that learns from its error rate? The cheapest version is around $1100

    re: Morgenwerk

    I read the linked information. Seems promising if the watch can learn young be more accurate than 10s/y. Since I just bought a GPS Astron, I really should not even consider this watch.

    Cool!
    Thanks for the link.

    The dial is spot on. Clear and concise is the way I like it.

    Some interesting new tricks here:
    Antennas to the outside. They will scratch though.
    Hook-up to recharge. I'll have to think about that one. Solar dial not reliable enough?

    I wonder what is the link to the company's website? No preordering yet?

    Don't look too hard at hard at those numbers. You can make them look really good with some temperature manipulation and wear pattern. A marketer's dream. The legal division's nightmare.

    I'm sure you're right. After all Seiko put out a non compensated 16 kHz movement in the early 70s that they guaranteed 24s/y. I'm thinking they assumed a pretty constant temperature.

    We need to see real world performance. Someone(s) will have to buy one and report on it.
