Mecaquartz. An interesting story to tell.
Mechaquartz movements were first invented in Switzerland and Japan during the quartz crisis in the late 80's. In Switzerland, Piguet and LeCoultre were the first to invent this particular movement. Because of quartz movements, watchmakers wanted to bring back the feeling of a sweeping second hand that could only be found on a mechanical watch at that time. They invented a mechanical module that could be paired with the accuracy of quartz battery. In Japan, Seiko took an advantage by proposing this movement to the actual market. Today, Furlan Marri wanted to bring back the story of "Mechaquartz", as it is also part of the Swiss History of watchmaking.
