Hi everybody!

I was just checking out the new 9015 and I can't see any shock absorption on the balance wheel jewel:

It's there, it is Citizen's "Parashock" shock-resistant balance jewel setting. They have used this in some form or another for decades, here is a photo lifted from the internet of the two jewels out of their settng:
