Guide to the High beat watch

Post by koimaster » October 21st 2020, 10:15pm

In the grand scheme of things, the rate at which a mechanical watch ticks probably doesn’t weigh too much on the mind of watch buyers, compared to more pertinent aspects, like complications, case size and dial design. But there are benefits to having a “high-beat” watch with a fast-ticking movement — most notably higher precision (especially in chronographs) where the watch can read out in smaller fractions of a second. Less technically, higher-beat watches have a smoother second hand. That’s sweet, sweet eye candy for watch obsessives.

With the lilt of Irish laughter

Every day and in every way

Now forever and ever after."
