Compact watch crystal measures just 1.6x1.1x0.5mm

Compact watch crystal measures just 1.6x1.1x0.5mm
Measuring just 1.6x1.1x0.5mm, Fox Electronics has announced the introduction of its most compact watch crystal. Although smaller in size, the FX161 crystal operates at many of the same high standards as previous models, making it one of the most efficient tuning forks yet. The crystal’s ultra-low profile and exceptional performance optimises the minimal space available in many portable and handheld applications, including wearables.
