Superb animation and storytelling.

The OMEGA Co-Axial escapement is used in conjunction with a free sprung-balance. The timepiece’s rate can be adjusted by modifying the moment of inertia of the balance wheel instead of repeatedly changing the active length of the hairspring. The adjustment is made by micro screws embedded in the circular balance wheel, a much easier task for the watchmakers. This design improves shock resistance and avoids the disturbances caused by touching the hairspring.
