In order to overcome the negative magnetic effects between the two technologies integrated into one case, Frederique Constant developed and patented a unique anti-magnetic shield case within the case. The movement also features something called calibre analytics, which measures the rate, amplitude and beat error of the mechanical calibre. It comes in a box that also serves as a rotator and charger, powering two technologies at once. It can also be charged outside the box with a USB cable.
