When starting a beloved timepiece, most people will go deeper and learn more about the intricate and precise structure of mechanical watches and their corresponding knowledge, especially based on their own Watches are the focus, and this has become the topic of discussion among watch fans. However, Frederique Constant has just launched a very novel analysis device. This is a compact, easy-to-use, and very affordable watch accuracy measurement device. Its arrival has made it easier for watch fans to use, A more convenient way to do a ‘medical examination’ of your watch in real time.
A device that can determine the accuracy of a mechanical watch movement is always very precise and expensive, so for most watch fans, this investment is completely unnecessary. So far, there are two best solutions for proofreading watches: 1. Try to maximize the time on the watch to a reliable external reference time, and record it in the next few days Daily precision value; 2, take the watch to a professional watch maintenance store, perform a full range of different types of performance tests, this method can obtain more complex and comprehensive results.
The working principle of this Frederique Constant watch analysis device is almost the same as the more expensive devices used by watchmakers (such as the so-called Swiss Witschi micro-hour meter, etc.), which is equipped with a In the microphone that records the movement of the movement of the movement, the audio frequency is analyzed to determine the movement speed and accuracy of the movement. However, please note that this also means that if your watch’s escapement is different, such as the Omega Co-Axial movement, it will make different sounds due to its unique escapement design, which will confuse the software’s judgment , Which may ultimately prevent the device from making accurate and effective analysis.
Even so, this analysis device, which appears in the form of a small clip and works on your watch, is a reliable and reliable partner for most traditional mechanical watches or pocket watches. Frederique Constant promised that the analysis device could guarantee at least an accuracy of +/- 0.2 seconds per day, which is really quite satisfactory. It works by placing the watch between the jaws covered with a layer of padding and connecting it to your IOS device (iPhone or iPad) or Android phone, then running Frederique Constant SwissConnect Analytics App software.
‘After a few seconds,’ Frederique Constant described the app as measuring the accuracy of the watch and displaying the audio waveform in real-time on the oscilloscope page, and the final result will be plotted in a chart that can be saved For future reference. When it comes to long-term testing, this analysis device can record and save long-lasting measurements, such as analyzing the performance of a watch without interruption for 12 hours. It may also be interesting to see how the watch’s performance curve changes over time as the mainspring loosens and the torque decreases …
As mentioned earlier, this analysis device can support a fairly wide range of frequencies, covering almost all mechanical watches on the market. Of course, if the user does not know the operating frequency of the watch, the frequency self-detection function in the app can also provide effective help. Finally, although I know that it is impossible, I still want to remind you that this Frederique Constant watch analysis device does not allow us to learn watchmaking skills, so it is extremely undesirable to open the back cover and manipulate the movement. Yes, if a problem is found, it must be referred to a professional to solve it.
Frederique Constant’s watch analysis device can be purchased at designated retail stores. Of course, it can also be purchased on Frederique Constant’s official website for 99 euros.
