【comment】
    Do not think that ‘jumping seconds’ is the patent of quartz watches, mechanical watches also have ‘jumping seconds’, and have a longer history than quartz watches. Mechanical jump seconds have appeared before the pocket watch period before the quartz era. After years of catastrophe, mechanical jump seconds are now more and more valued and loved by people, which also shows that mechanical watches have long been ‘recovering lost ground’ ‘The war was absolutely won and it is in the stage of rapid recovery and development. The form of ‘jumping seconds’ is realized through the interactive movement of a set of gear trains and levers placed between the seconds wheel and the mainspring gear. Panerai also deliberately installed a magnifying glass device in the transparent case back to change this. A structure is displayed.
