Michael Friedberg Wrote:This has been discussed before, and is the subject of some debate among watchmakers.I once was talking to Philippe Stern, head of Patek (now is son is CEO), and asked why all Pateks do not hack. He said that his watchmakers told him that suddenly stopping the balance is not good for a watch.But most brands do hack, and they have survived as accurate timekeepers for years. So my best view is that it can't be great, but it won't cause much damage either.
Isobars Wrote:The problem with non-hacking watches is they are hard to set, both in sync and against a time standard. I see both as strong disadvantages, so I would rather hack then not.--Cheers from Isobars.
