TiloH Wrote:The 89365 is inhouse, it has a flyback mechanism, the "watch in watch" feature wich is showing hours and minutes in the same dial like a second watch. Unfortunately the new Spitfire Pilot's chrono doesn't have that hour counting hand. And it has 68 hours power reserve instead of 44 in the 7750. But the 7750 had the day of week display that the 8936x doesn't feature. That display I liked a lot.
minimalist Wrote:Thank you all...And YESSSS.... thank you Michael, this is what I want to hear that this movement uses a vertical clutch and column wheel!!! That's amazing. One is an innovation to control the chronograph hand like in many modern chronograph watches and one is a traditional chronograph style.A column wheel is a very complex mechanism. I had a column wheeled chronograph watches: PanoGraph, Datograph, Master Compressor Chronograph, PAM275, Zenith Striking 10th... this traditional style reflects the innovation from the past and more attractive when seeing through the transparent case back. But for cal.89365 I cannot see the movement from the case back and there's less details about this movement on catalog and web site. I think IWC should provide a much more details of their movements to get more user experiences from their customers.Sample technical details I would like them to show:- balance wheel?- escapement?- main spring?- clutch?- base movement architecture?- decoration?etc.Because I think these will help them to get more user experiences. I know this is not a complicated watch like minute repeater or perpetual calendar that they usually show the inside, but some customer like me probably want to know what is inside the case and behind the design.Anyway, I love a vertical clutch & column wheel... It's enough :)
