Feelings that I put in microcosm
I think only about 40mm diameter that watch, accuracy of the rice was mechanism in the size of the weight of 100g, it features a thing worthy of just called a microcosm. Among them OCEANUS deserves to be called “innovation of the blue” just not the pursuit of precision and functions as a clock, in a sense, the technology and likely to call the original and technical personnel of romantic Good has been put.
This time, and Yoshiyuki Hasegawa of Casio Computer Co., Ltd. module Planning Office, spoke to the young engineers Tadashi Kojima of the Planning Office.
“For example, it is a dual-coil motor, this is in order to more smoothly both visually and the movement of the hands of the clock, just moving rather than stop, was aimed at last to stop slowly. Such a fine movement. in addition, in order to pursue the personality in the texture and design surface of the needle and the dial, first there was a need to increase the power generation efficiency of power saving and solar panels. “
In order to pursue the quality is, that he must face the many challenges in the technical side. In fact, the needle of the movement of the OCEANUS is pleasant to sensuous.
“The pursuit of the mechanism accuracy of the watch is, of course, OCEANUS had is that I would like you to feel the joy that also has as in addition to the” things “.”
Module designers also cooperation with the design team is made to the fact that essential.
Be considered as a “module alone, solar part, GPS, when it comes to want to incorporate the motor to a small gap of major parts, such as, no longer have to be developed the world’s smallest motor. It is also because five is required, It was “done a lot of trial and error.
The pursuit of sensibility quality of the “blue”
Not only improve the mechanical precision, but the fact that there put a sense of accuracy.
To symbolize the “emotional quality is, you use the sapphire for the” blue “. Its representation as a color that symbolizes the” blue “and would be good to say. Earth and the sea of OCEANUS. In addition this time of the model in was using the ceramic to the bezel. this high hardness ceramics of trial and error very difficult to color the two colors a result, we were able to achieve a beautiful bezel than ever before. various titanium, sapphire, ceramic, etc. OCEANUS as a clock that has a sensitivity performance that brings together the material, has been that it is watch with a new value that is different from the mechanical watch. ”
“Intelligent analog”. As they positioned so, I think that lurking is a new value that goes beyond the genre and function and performance in this watch.
