You'll get more responses - there's always a lively debate between those who opt for more established brands like Omega and those who prefer German "upstarts" like Sinn and Damasko. Best of luck!Fair point, it’s literally my third post on the forum. Not sure if I can start a new post. But let me try. Thanks for your suggestion
Thanks mate for a more open approach towards making forum a cool and friendly place. I certainly understand your point about omega and I share the same opinion. I am planning to drive to Damasko, if they r open for visits to check the size on my wrist and maybe a more in person discussion can spin up something nice and custom for me.I heard they couldnt get enough Si systems for general sales but that I could custom order one.
I dont have ANY watch from swatch group. I have issues already with ETA but these are so heavily modified, they're more Sinn or damasko than ETA so that I can handle.
I just.... dont like conglomerate brands. I recognize their need and their place in the market! But I choose independence If i can. So. No omega.
Haha, I'm only just diving into this now!I was asked here somewhere what the Si system includes. Well... Here goes!
- Damasko oscillating system – regulated in 5 positions
- Silicone balance spring
- Balance wheel
- Mass weights
- Reinforced barrel
- Balance bridge
- Ceramic rotor bearings.
- Chrono grade movement
A Faraday cage helps against EM fields and yes, EM fields and magnetic fields are closely linked but not entirely. I work with Faraday cages for my work as well and believe me...a Faraday cage on such a tiny scale has little (no) effect on the magnets I work with. So what is being done is find materials that don't respond to magnets, at all, such as the silicon spring/balance or in conventional watches, the Nivarox spring for example. Nivarox as well as silicon aren't just just less (to not) perceptable to magnetic fields but also temperature changes.That’s amazing, maybe a thing I will consider when pulling the trigger. Quick question: does the DC82 not have the faraday cage and hence a complete magnetic protection?
