Anyway does anyone who got this in their hands tried to mod the link jewel in white and put the movement in a zf case, or maybe even did an AR coating on the crystal, waiting for mine and till I have it in hands I really don’t know what mods should be done on it..

Today they posted another video on WeChat (I still don't know how to upload them sorry) I think it looks very similar or the same as the one @MasterWatch posted but with different light.

Damn BBR, way to go! Instead of AR coating the sapphire they're frosting in now. Thanks for rolling back progress on the carbon too. 🤣

Asked about this to my td as I’m have an order placed for a white bbr but if this comes available could switch to this before, not a huge fan of the carbon atm though

Shuttering is more of a gravitational issue I think, it doesn’t shutter on certain angles where the second hand moves against gravity, second hand hangs in place or something I don’t know

It's the friction spring, Caliber Corner does a writeup here: https://calibercorner.com/stuttering-seconds-hand-explained/

Given that the BBR movement is a Miyota 8215 torn up with different bridges, it almost certainly uses the indirect drive method as described. The trouble in adjusting it is in the nonstandard assembly (which may be difficult to put back together) and in the degree of adjustment. Too much and you'll lower the amplitude and power reserve, also negatively affecting timekeeping, and too little and the stuttering will just get worse. Thankfully it doesn't damage the movement but the spring will loosen over time, resulting in more dramatic stutters in between adjustments.

Maybe the best option to eliminate the second hand : P

HOLY SHIT if you look closely the seconds hand is stuck behind the movement! Check out the lower left corner in the still images, that diagonal bar is the seconds hand!
Good spot, interesting choice to include this on the promotional pics.!!

Posted on Trustytime:


Movement has the extra hole that the first BBR versions didn’t! Also the jewel is now white :) and it says that the sapphire crystal now has a purple AR coating similar to gen! Will the first BBR versions get these new improvements?
