Hello!

My name is Frederic and I'm glad to join this community. I am a mechanical engineer by training and I work for a Swiss research institute called CSEM. You may have never heard of CSEM but many innovations in the watchmaking industry were born in the crazy minds of our researchers. To name a few public examples: the quartz wristwatch (yes, it was ironically a Swiss invention...), the silicon hairspring, or the photovoltaic dial found in the Tissot T Touch Connect Solar.

I do not intend to post daily but I'll be happy to share and discuss some innovation insights, from our institute and beyond. Hopefully, I can find some tech nerds here who crave new technologies and innovations in the watch world.

Besides my engineering mind, I do love to bake, especially crazy birthday cakes for my little ones. Feel free to share recipes with me!

Happy Thanksgiving to the people celebrating it and have a lovely end of the week!

Welcome Frederic. Thank you for a great introduction. This may not be relevant to you, yet, but it is so good to see a first poster say hello and and share something about themselves rather than the all too frequent, "is this watch a fake?" Happy Thanksgiving to you as well.

Welcome and enjoy this forum.

Besides watches, we all like to talk about pastries as well........

No more pastries!!! Let's discuss Rolex some more instead.

(My wife is a pastry chef, and for some strange reason, i am 6kg above race weight, with no signs of it coming down).
