Five-motor driven through movement in a super-tough body that resists powerful gravitational forces.
Watch hands moving at high speeds in an environment of powerful gravitational forces are prone to lose their rotational balance due to their own weight and break down as a result. We responded by adjusting the weight balance of each hand based on precise calculations and positioning the hands in optimal locations. This permits high-speed hand movement of up to one rotation per second under powerful gravitational forces, enabling installation of a 1/100-second stopwatch that can withstand hand use by aviators.
We employ specially designed testing equipment to test durability under an acceleration environment exceeding human endurance. Our tests confirm the ability of Gravity Defier's 1/100-second stopwatch and other features to function normally in a merciless environment far surpassing the 12G attained in air racing and the 5g in F1 racing.
The case is fully enclosed in a forge moulding-reinforced polyhedral metal bezel to protect the module, while a large-diameter urethane ring is installed to safeguard the crystal. The urethane ring also plays a role in preventing damage to cockpit equipment.
Strong stainless-steel screws inserted and tightened from both sides connect the band securely to the case. The screw heads are shaved off to permit polished finishing.
