Last week on Friday I started the first HD-video out of a series of seven produced together with IWC Schaffhausen. They are all devoted to the high watchmaking complications of the Manufacture located in Schaffhausen.
Let´s keep it short: This is episode number two of IWC´s The Man´s guide to Haute Horlogerie featuring an amazing watch that incorporates an outstanding mechanical complication you will not find very often elsewhere. It´s a real specialty developed and manufactured in-house by IWC.
Today´s IWC personality presenting you this episode is Thomas Gäuman, Head of Research and Development, Movements
Just in case you mist the last Friday’s episode HERE is a direct link to get there.
The story goes on…
Next Friday episode number three of IWC´s The Man´s guide to Haute Horlogerie will go online.
Same time same station folks, so please don´t touch that dial … 🙂
I was disappointed in this one. I was hoping for, in general terms, how the device interacts with the movement, how does the escapement get power, things of that nature. for instance, how is disconnecting the balance from from the gear train and barrel accomplished. How does this arrangement allow for the transfer of energy? How does constant force work?
Didn’t really get any insight into the working of it, which is the interesting part and I know it all has to be patented.
