I still have my one and only Alpha, thanks to Max. Can I say that? Max is not one of our sponsors! :lol:
Why he would sell such a great watch is beyond my comprehension. It's a keeper for sure! :thumbup:

OK, one complaint; if I'm not wearing my reading glasses, I have no idea what time it is. I think that's why Max sold it!

:) that there is a really good lookin Alpha Mr KW, :drool:

that was nice of Max to spread the love around:thumbup1:

since you have reading glasses Mr KW, my Alpha picture was a one second exposure, how many beats per second does that look like to you guys that can see...:blink: I can't quite make it out:blink:

four BPS would be 28,800. I don't think anyone is running any higher than that... (4 X 60 X 60 X 2)

The new co-axial runs at 25,200 which is 3.5 BPS...

Three BPS would be 21,600.

Rolex, pre- co-ax Omega, and Eta all run at 28,800 (except Speedy, which I think is 21,600), as do many of the Japanese automatics (and a few Russian). Some Japanese and Russian run at 21,600.

Do correct me if I'm wrong on these anyone...:confused1:

Mr Jim,

math is not my strong suit at all but here is what I always assumed....


21,600 per hour X 24 = 518,400 /86,400 secs per day = 6 beats per second?

and the high beat...

28,800 per hour X 24 = 691,200 /86,400 secs per day = 8 beats per second?

in the picture with a one second exposure you can almost count 6 individual beats ( well KW and Wautersjr can) and actually I have no idea what BPH movement the Chineese had designed the Alpha's at..

now please correct me if I'm wrong, I'm terrible at math:confused1:

thanks Mr Jim, what do you think?
