Birth of Ferdinand Berthoud in Plancement sur Couvet (Switzerland). He settled in Paris (where he died in 1807) and became known as one of the most outstanding manufacturers of marine timekeepers of his era.
The British Parliament published rating results for John Harrison's H.4 marine timekeeper, 52 years after the competition was launched and after five years of trials. Harrison was awarded part of the £20,000 prize. World history
With proper storage, high-quality electronic circuits can last a very long time, with a lifespan measured in decades. In fact, satellites and spacecraft constructed in the 1970s are still transmitting valuable scientific data from deep space back to Earth, despite the harsh radiation beyond our Solar System. And these space voyagers are naturally equipped with electronic clocks, albeit primitive timekeepers compared to those of today. Yet there they are, having travelled far beyond human imagination and still oscillating away.
A totally flat 48 mm by 42 mm titanium case is split into nine squares, eight filled with movable counters and one left empty like a sliding puzzle. These counters, separated by lines symbolizing those of latitude and longitude, enable the wearer to set and measure time in the current location, plus three others.
Sure, there was all this power and punch and energy, but that was just the beginning. The Timekeeper Virtuoso offered up a clear, extended, upper few octaves that just made everything seem a little more real, a little more airy. Tonally it certainly wasn't bright, as in there was no exaggeration of the upper frequencies, but rather just a little more detail and speed compared to other amps I've used. It was really noticeable on the metallic sheen and shimmer on cymbals and other such percussion instruments. Not at all grainy or otherwise negatively impacted as I hear on some lesser solid-state amplifiers. It really allowed the Audax Gold tweeter of the Tektons, or the wonderful titanium tweeter of the old Sound Dynamics 300tis to show off their capabilities.
In 1968, Juergen Staudte invented a photolithographic process for manufacturing quartz crystal oscillators while working at North American Aviation (now Rockwell) that allowed them to be made small enough for portable products like watches.
Aluminium 6061 T6Aluminum type 6061 is an alloy of three main elements: aluminum, magnesium and silicon. There are also additions of: copper, zinc, manganese and titanium. These additional elements make up to 4% of the alloy. There are few tempered grades of 6061 and the most popular ones are: T0, T4 and T6. T6 is solutionized and artificially aged.

This sporty timekeeper features a bright blue dial with New Lite accents so checking the time is a breeze in any light. Flip this timekeeper over to see for yourself how the automatic movement works, and while you're there, see which watch out of 300 you've snagged!
Cases exist in a variety of shapes and sizes and utilize a library of materials for construction such as stainless steel, gold, ceramic, titanium, plastic, and more. The dominance of stainless steel in case construction remains, however, hypo-allergenic metals and materials, like titanium, continue to gain in popularity. Metal cases often have particular finishes - such as a smooth reflective polish or circular matte brush - that enhance the presentation of the timepiece and give it unique depth.
Edox is proud to be chosen as official timekeeper of various competitions and races around the globe. And as a result of this, many athletes and explorers are relying on the quality of their Edox watches as well:
Last but not least, some of the most important aspects of portable devices are their total harmonic distortion and noise levels. While THD is already very low due to THX modules and dual ESS-Sabre design, its noise floor is also staying in check. At maximum volume it reaches 3.5 μV on its single ended output and up to 7 μV on its balanced out, but that is okay considering how much power it pumps towards its headphone jacks.
Instead of using dynamic driver headphones, I decided throwing it in a den of three wolves: Audeze LCD-4, Kennerton Rognir and Hifiman Susvara. All three are planar-magnetic headphones that need more current compared to dynamic headphones. I chose them specifically, as they put to shame several portable DAPs in the past. First two worked decently enough with a FiiO M15 and Shanling M8, but never exemplary on any portable devices, but I feel that is going to change today.
Is there a more sophisticated way of telling the time than a pocket watch? The best pocket watches are more than just timekeepers. They are living reminders of the fascinating tradition of horology and a long-standing signal of taste and class.
Pocket watches were invented in the 16th century. One of the first pocket watch manufacturers was Peter Henlein, who invented watches that used mainsprings instead of weights, allowing the creation of portable watches. 2b1af7f3a8
