That is amazing!Very cool, thanks for sharing! Have seen this before and actually own the spring drive land master. It's accuracy is phenomenal. I've let it wind down only about 5 times over an 8 month period. It keeps within 1-2 seconds a month so far : )
Correct, no battery, no capacitors, nothing to wear or degrade, the inductions coils will never degrade, nor will the rare earth magnets to generate the electricity....... its a watch made for generations and it mechanical art form at its best, my analogy is the most correct too.That is amazing!
What really impresses me is that it powers itself. No battery. It's damn near a perpetual motion machine when an automatic wind mechanism is added. Mind blown! It has to be one of, if not, the most efficient electrical device on the planet.
That is like saying you cant compare a car with an EFI system v's one with a carburetorYou can't really compare spring drive to a pure mechanical movement. Apples and oranges...
Refer my car analogy, I dont like electric cars, as the majority dont too.Well my solar atomic Casio is even better by your logic! No fussy mechanical parts to wear. Using an old fashion spring to provide power seems very primitive.
No you are confused.It keeps time using a quartz crystal. That's not pure mechanical. It's a mechanical/quartz hybrid. So really more like a prius.
Yep you got it, same as an ECU controls fuel and spark and boost pressure and .......... in a decent car. No one drives a Model T Ford anymore cause its a piece of **** LOL.I'm not confused. I've read quite a bit about spring drive and understand how it works. I will concede that it displays time in a mechanical fashion. But an integrated circuit controls the electronic brake that controls the rate of the mechanism unwinding. Pretty cool!
