Our supreme achievement: a watch that doesn't tick.

Actually, it's not a watch. It's the Accutron® timepiece.
And it doesn't tick because it has no balance wheel, no mainspring, no hairspring.
We left those parts out of Accutron because they can make a watch run fast or slow. 
We've replaced all the balance wheel business with a tiny tuning fork that hums. The tuning fork vibrates 360 times a second. 
No watch that ticks deals with a second that precisely. 
The best a ticking watch can do is divide a second into 5 or 10 parts.
It's the tuning fork's uncanny precision that makes Accutron the most accurate timepiece you can wear.
Accutron time is so nearly perfect that we can guarantee monthly accuracy to within 60 seconds.*
And many owners say they don't lose that in a year.
If you look into an Accutron timepiece, you won't see the same things going on in there that go on in your ticking watch. But don't be alarmed.
It's all part of our anti-tick movement.
