In the watch world, enthusiasts and collectors are obsessed with accuracy. Sometimes it’s kind of annoying. Mechanical watches are machines and they are not perfect. This quest for perfect time keeping can really put a hamper on things. I totally understand when you are paying a lot of money for something you expect perfection, but in the case of mechanical watches there will always be slight variations. The watch companies have done a remarkable job at ensuring and testing accuracy no just in house with sophisticated technology, but also with the help of the best accuracy companies in Switzerland, such as Chronometer, Geneva Seal. Hallmark De Geneve. etc.
For those of us out there who want more control over how accurate our watches are , there is a new company that let’s us do some home diagnostics with the use of our IPhone. This company is called, OneOf out of Switzerland.
The one of device is Made of anodized 6000 series aluminium unibody, the sensor has been designed with the utmost care and every detail has been perfected in conjunction with the best Swiss watch suppliers. Compared to any other measurement instruments, the high-end finishing of the accuracy sensor will definitely be consistent with your timepiece.
Just place the crown of your watch against the ONEOF® accuracy sensor and touch the dragonfly button. After a few seconds of initialization, you get all the detailed technical information about your watch in a fun and user-friendly app : beats per hour, instantaneous and average rate accuracy in seconds per day, amplitude of the balance wheel, beat error, signal analyzer… You then have the possibility to save all the results in your watch’s database.
This is a great timing device for one to use at home who may have one or multiple watches and wants a somewhat accurate reading very quickly in style. This is better suited for shorter ranges not longer ranges like the watch companies would use. This is a timing device only. It doesn’t fix or adjust the accuracy of your watch. This can be purchased here for slightly over $600. You can buy something for less than half the price that’s more cumbersome and heavy. I think for the money it’s a very sexy and smart device that is well made and has good functionality.
