The Vicenterra Luna volume 1 has a 45-jewel movement

For many mobile workers, tablets are a good choice. When faced with the dust and grit of a construction site, however, or there's a good chance of being subjected to a soaking on a regular basis, many tablet users run for cover ... quite literally.
