Miura Yuichiro said, "The Everest is the edge of the universe I can reach." In order to interact with the space closest to the universe, the developed models, regardless of the internal structure or the Seiko watch movement, must endure the extreme and harsh environment on the Everest. Therefore, the GMT 5R66 SPRING DRIVE patented by SEIKO is specially adopted. The movement, the SPRING DRIVE and the mechanical watch are also driven by springs, while the speed control device that controls the hands uses a quartz oscillator and IC. Compared with the "escapement system" of the mechanical movement, the quartz oscillator is used to control the speed. It has the characteristics of anti-shock, and it will not lose its accuracy due to the hardening of the lubricating oil in the low temperature environment. The Seiko watch movement does not require the use of batteries. Even if the temperature undergoes a drastic change in temperature on the way to the summit of Everest, there will be no damage to the battery or it will stop running without warning. It is most suitable for use in severe environments Watch movement.
