Information about the used luminous material
The illuminant used is called Superluminova BGW9. Superluminova BGW9 has a white color in daylight. In the dark, the elements are colored to a light blue hue. The luminosity is about 95 percent in direct comparison with Superluminova C3. Superluminova BGW9´s luminosity is superior to that of Superluminova C1 and Superluminova C3.
Information about the movement Miyota 9015
The caliber 9015, which was presented for the first time in 2009, is a revolutionary development of the 8215 caliber. Equipped with a ball bearing rotor, a second stop and a date with a quick-change circuit, this new plant works very precisely with 28,800 half oscillations per hour. The range deviation is indicated as -10 to +30 seconds per day. According to experience, however, the work runs much more precisely, in some cases with a deviation in the single-digit second range. Furthermore, the movement has a shock absorber, a Swiss anchoring inhibitor and a manual hoist. The reserve is 42 hours. The movement is a technical masterpiece due to its low overall height of only 3.9 mm.
Informationen about a Ceramic bezel
A ceramic base is a component consisting of a so-called technical ceramic, which has recently gained in importance in the watch industry. These beads are pressed under high pressure and fired at above 1400 ° C. This makes the strings extremely resistant, resistant and scratch-resistant. Its silky sheen is obtained by polishing the diamonds after production. An additional feature is the processing of Superluminova BGW9 on the ceramic element.
Informationen about sapphire crystal
Visually, there is hardly any difference between a sapphire crystal and a mineral glass. The specific material properties are considered, large differences can be observed. In contrast to the mineral glass, which resembles the quartz in its chemical structure, the sapphire glass is made synthetically and consists of high-purity aluminum oxide. A sapphire glass has a hardness of nine, which corresponds exactly to that of the natural precious stone sapphire, from which the name for the glass was derived. Mineral glasses have only degrees of hardness of six to seven. Due to the material properties, sapphire glass is extremely resistant, scratch-resistant and is also particularly resistant to breakage. Despite heavy usage a sapphire glass still looks like after the first day.
