Saw this 'out of this world' news today guys.  Smile

Looks like watch companies are beginning to test watches, and watch movements in zero gravity now.
To test what happens with the watches, and movements in zero gravity as opposed to normal gravity
on Earth. They're calling it testing to the "seventh position", because there are no gravity effects.

H. Moser & Cie, along with sister company Precision Engineering got to be the first to take flight on
September 22 from Switzerland, and it looks like Hamilton, and ETA were second just yesterday, the
5th of October in Merignac France.
